Most of our funerals are big parties, fighter pilots throw a kegger and burn a piano, we have done it since WWII, google it. Just a different perspective.

Re: Stage 4 hope to share

[ The best part of being a 24 year old 1st Lieutenant fighter pilot? Everyone expects a screw up now and again, I screwed up and got laughed and then named for it. How many people that age hasn’t messed up with a 40 million dollar airplane? This was darn near 20 years ago, I think I’m safe. THANK Y...

Re: Constipation - Drinking Water (>120 ounces)

I have had chronic constipation since 2016 after my hemicolectomy. I hardly ever got relief. I also take iron supplements because I am anemic which only makes constipation worse. I take docusate (stool softner) with every meal (3 times a day), that helped but not as much as when i recently started ...

Re: Probiotics while on Immunotherapy. Good or bad?

Do it. When I lived in Korea I couldn’t stand kimchi, now that I don’t, I can’t get enough of the stuff. Then again, Keytruda didn’t work for me.

Re: Stage 4 hope to share

Re: This SUCKS, and we haven’t even begun to fight

Are any other apouses of victims on here? THESE POOR VICTIMS OF CANCER HAVE IT WORSE, but being a spouse during this is second place. I’m between panic and tears, then knowledge-grabbing (I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE HELP YOU HAVE GIVEN), and now I’m mad at everyone for not doing anything. What’s worse...

Re: No more personal updates from me

I have no idea what half of these comments mean. Mobrouser, I don't believe you and I have ever conversed. I don't criticize people or say anything that should stop them from "speaking." If you could point to any examples, I would love to know about them. My husband has posted a few times...

Re: Liver pain

Gas? I’m having terrible gas pain after chemo and weird food, almost like it doesn’t want to come out. It could be pushing on your insides.
