Re: Lymph negative but one marked as 'i+'

Hi Squak, I had something similar I think, my pathology report said tumour deposits on the meso colon, when I asked what these were I was told they were isolated tumour cells, and that I was between stage 2c and 3a, but the surgeon said they were not really classified as lymph nodes. I had adjuavant...

Re: Chemo Question

Hi Mike, I did not use Xelox, so cannot comment on it. I did have 12 cycles of FolFox, and while I had some problems the port and the pump were the least of them. The port really worked well for me as I had very poor veins because I was in physically bad shape as a result of complications from my su...

Re: Help plz- discouraged after 3rd Folfox

Hello HopeForJesse, When I was on Folfox I was very tired and sleepy for five to seven days after infusion and would sleep for long periods. I was on Dexamethasone which helped with the nausea, but had to come off it as it made me feel very down, then went on Zofran which I found worked well except ...

Re: Incidental LAMN tumour

We have four adult children, 30, 29, 26, 24, (we started young, being together 34years) two of them have had clear colono...

Incidental LAMN tumour

Hi All,
When I was diagnosed with my main tumour in my cecum there was an incidental finding of a LAMN tumour of my appendix, which combined with the main tumour had caused a blockage of my bowel which led to my hospitaliziation, anyone else have similar experience?
Regards
