Re: Scanxiety: Anyone else having testing now?

Cancer won't break me and keep me from enjoying life. Dammit! :twisted: Sorry to hear you have to deal with more. Hopefully things will settle down for you soon. I haven't been to Yellowstone, but I've been to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and it was A-MA-ZING! You're going to love Yellowst...

Re: Scanxiety: Anyone else having testing now?

Long overdue hello, Diana. :) Glad to hear that your numbers went back to normal. I'm due for my CT tomorrow, results next Tuesday, so I'm in full scanxiety mode. I try to deny it, but I know it's true. After all, here I be. <:- ) I'll keep praying for you, you keep praying for me. Smiles, hugs and ...

Re: Took my last dose of Xeloda last night

Just finished chemo last night. Took those pills and thought to myself, ok, this is done. Now starts the watching and waiting. On the outside, I am happy for this milestone. On the inside, I wonder if I am deluding myself. I really just want to enjoy this... does one ever feel free after cancer? I ...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast, hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me -- not in her. And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

I am so very sorry to hear this news. I haven't been on the forum for a while, and so this is shocking. My love and prayers go to beansmama's family and friends, as well as to all of us here in Colon Club who feel this loss so deeply. It cuts. It doesn't make sense. And it's so unfair. Although I d...

Re: another anniversary

Another year ,still cancer free. My cancer was removed on this day in 1998. I have survived cancer free for twenty years. I have been very fortunate to get this far and there has been a lot of collateral damage along the way. I spent the second day of this year in hospital after collapsing at home ...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

Thanks CRGuy and Lee. Yes, it felt powerful to get to meet them IRL. Finding this group changed my life, and Anne was a huge part of that. I wanted them to know that, and felt really blessed to get to do that. I'll be sure to let the group know if I end up touching base with any of them in the futur...

Re: Son is ill and I am scared

So sorry that you are going through all of this. My son is still young, but I know I would be much more worried if he were having health issues than I ever could be over my own. That's just the mom in us, isn't it? My prayers and hugs go out to you and him. Hopefully they will be able to find out wh...

Re: Back in the fight

Thanks everyone. Plan is to transfer me to a specialist neuro surgical department in a Dublin hospital to have growth removed. Docs feel it is most likely a met, but can not find any others so will approach this with curative intent which I think is very positive. They did say it's unusual to have ...

Thanks again everyone - I wanted to post a quick update as today were the services for our Beansmama. I found out a few days ago that they were actually having them fairly close to where I live (couple hours drive), and while I didn't want to infringe on the family I felt really strongly that I want...

Re: Resection Distance / Margins - what were yours?

I'm going to try and stop worrying about this... I just have occasional mental images of cancerous lymph nodes hiding more than 18mm from the tumour that didn't get removed. I swear I used to be a rational thinker before cancer arrived... Hah - didn't we all used to be?!? :) I totally understand. I...
