Re: Keytruda

I got offered keytruda yesterday, I’ve been on regular chemo for about 3 years minus surgery time and everything is held at bay for the time being. A “maybe” tumor in pelvis and lung, they aren’t quite sure. My question is the timing, who stopped chemo that was working well try something different? ...

Re: Pump people recurrence question

It only shakes me up and scares the living daylights out of me. Just like a martini in a James Bond movie, eh? The way Dr Kemeny is spoken about in this forum, I have long received the impression she was ageless. I’m with you, a lot of trust in 1 person who isn’t getting any younger, but her knowle...

Re: Any younger men post rectal surgery?

First post here, I was just diagnosed with stage 1 (T2N0M0) in December, at least according to the MRI/CAT, right above the rectal verge, with another very "aggressive" polyp in the transverse that they couldn't connect with genetic testing. I say all of that since I don't have a signatur...

Re: How did you first discover or got diagnosed with colorectal cancer ?

It bled so much I went to the doctor and then the hospital to get a transfusion, in the hospital I got a CT where they discovered it. I was 38 and this type of cancer doesn’t run in the family, tot...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I just wanted to add to the idea of stress being a huge contributing factor, if not the root cause, to cancer. When i was first DX,they told me that they estimated my tumor had been forming basically for about 8-10 years. Of course, I thought back to around that time and was in fact going through a...
