Re: Declining WBC/ANC - post-chemo?

I can't remember exactly what I was told. But was told after chemo to have regular bone density tests and watch wbc and/or anc. Chemo can do damage to bone or bone marrow. I also had radiation so that may play in also why it was recommended.

Re: MSK liver surgeon

Hey JJH, thank you thank you. I found Dr. Kingham but was really thinking of D'Angelica. Couldn't remember his name though. Again, Thank you!
I hope you are doing well!

Re: I'm getting worried

You are right, vitD is very important to thousands of functions in the body.
My onc put me on 10,000 IU as of last Tues. My D level was at 42.3
Keep an eye on your mag/cal ratio. Watch phosphorous levels.
Let me know how you are tolerating it pretty please.

Re: Wnt pathway

Research is hard to find for sure.
I did find a paper that said everolimus (mTOR inhibitor) plus genistein also has good results against Wnt in the small studies. I'll take it, goodness.
If you run across anything please let me know. I am still digging for info over here.

Wnt pathway

Hi, been researching CEA and Iron spikes. I found two papers talking about the APC gene and turning on the Wnt pathway. Does anyone know anything about this?
Is there a test to find out about the gene and pathway? Any info at all would be so helpful.
All else on bloodwork looks good.

Blood work

Well, CEA is up 4pts in 32 days. Going to email surgeon tomorrow to push for another scan and surgery if something shows or exploratory if nothing shows.
Tomorrow will be 1yr since surgery on the primary. What luck!!!

Re: Constant bowel movement and burning bottom!!!

Sitz baths with baking soda and epsom salt will neutralize the bacteria and acid getting on his skin is what comes to mind (back from radiation days).
