Re: HELP. Mother’s treatment wrong?

Looks to me like she’s getting standard care. I’d wait for the results of the pathology where her stage will be confirmed. I’m certain that an oncologist will be involved at some point. Please be patient and don’t listen to too much outside noise. And, listen to what she wants done.

Peace

Re: Need Support - Told today I'm on Palliative Care

Don't give up! I know, it's easy to just say that, but, there have been many people who have been told that surgery is out of the question, and have become candidates. Not all doctors/surgeons have the same skill and confidence, sometimes it's a matter of looking a little harder. Sounds to me that c...

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: Anyone pass out after abdominal cramping??? ER time

The Albany scan is not what you need to be looking at. It has to be an MSK scan for proper analysis.

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

Not unusual, I had a couple of sessions postponed because of high liver enzymes, they watch them like hawks. They’ll come back to normal range and you can have the joy of chemo again!

Re: OFF TOPIC: Specialists in silos, patient suffering as result

As it relates to this topic, from Wikipedia: An information silo, or a group of such silos, is an insular management system in which one information system or subsystem is incapable of reciprocal operation with others that are, or should be, related. Thus information is not adequately shared but rat...

Re: Hospitals that install HAI pump?

OK, so I got clarification from a physician heavily involved in HAI pumps at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids. I think he is a liver oncological surgeon. His facility is using the Medtronic SynchroMed II with Codman catheter. MSK is the only place conducting a trial on this new adaptation and everyo...

Re: Update on supplements with some history

What Chinese herbs are you considering resuming? I had been on a number of pills that are a combination of herbs and mushrooms - custom blends by Dr Guo in Chicago - as well as PSK. I honestly think these helped my initial response to FOLFOX, as pretty much everyone says I’ve had amazing / unbeliev...

Re: Update on supplements with some history

In my research there are only three things readily available that have shown to be effective in keeping from recurring. VITAMIN D, ASPIRIN and PHYSICAL EXERCISE. This can be checked by doing a PUBMED or google scholar database search. Vitamin D blood levels have to be optimal, around 5000/iu at leas...
