We both grew up in impoverished homes (single-parent) but my wife grew up in a third-world country which is a lot tougher than in the US. I used to spend what I made but my wife saved as much as she could and I took her perspective after we got married.

The US is definitely a place where you can shoot yourself in the foot in managing your finances; but there's incredible opportunity here too. In the 2008 financial crisis, hundreds of thousands of finance professionals lost good, high-paying jobs and lost their homes, retirement savings, had to take their kids out of private schools or college, etc. A lot of people lived life up to what they could spend or borrow and that's often a formula for tragedy. Many of us saw the financial crisis back in 2002/2003 and it was a time to save like mad, not have a huge party. At least not from my perspective.

There are systems for the indigent or those without work in the US. The systems vary widely from state to state as they are managed by the states and funded by the state and federal governments. So care is dependent on a variety of factors but generally related to the financial health and priorities of the state legislatures and their governors.

I would like to spend but I don't see the point until I can get my body more reliable. I certainly have a ton of vacation time accrued (company has a policy of "unlimited vacation time") - I just seldom take it.

We have been talking about how we want to handle finances moving forward from my diagnosis, so this is a welcome topic. We have always been careful with money and have much less house than we could technically afford. We put the maximum allowable amount into retirement savings, and have for years. We've always been saving up with the thought of retiring early and doing more world travelling later (we've been going abroad for vacations maybe once every 5-6 years or so). With my CC diagnosis we're thinking to rebalance things slightly and put more emphasis on travel while we're in good health, while continuing to save up for early retirement. We only have the two of us to worry about, no kids to put through college, which helps with the finances.

It sounds like you should recover well with your diagnosis so probably no limits on travel. I've listened to this podcast series over the years and they regularly cover stuff which are considerations into heading into retirement: https://www.financialsense.com/financia ... ome-series

They also recommend traveling first as it gets harder in the mid-70s and later.

Our only concern now with retirement is healthcare. There are not many companies that pay for your health insurance after you retire anymore. Unless you work for the government, maybe a public school teacher, or the auto companies and a package is offered, you're on your own for health insurance until you can get medicare. Our retirement savings is quite comfortable, but now with my diagnosis it could be quite costly to pay for health insurance until I qualify for medicare. We have a few years before we're 65, so now may have to wait a little longer than originally planned to retire. With companies constantly reorganizing you never know when your position may be eliminated either. Good planning is essential.

I had a look at the public exchanges in my state and I had a difficult time understanding exactly what coverage they provided. The feeling that I got was that they provided less coverage compared to what I had at my job and charged significantly more for it. That would be a reasonable conclusion given that the typical age of our employees is probably a lot younger than those in the public exchanges.

Some states, though, might have much better options for public exchanges though and I'm guessing that Massachusetts is one of them given that they had Universal coverage before the Affordable Care Act. What I'd like to know, though, is would the public exchanges in my state cover Dana Farber and Mass General. It's an HMO system and I couldn't determine if they covered the MA high-end hospitals.

The Affordable Care Act is in flux, both at the Federal and State levels, and I think that things are going to be confusing there for a while. Hopefully there will be more (and even better) options coming down the road.

Yes, this is a very good idea. A patient-oriented booklet on pelvic chemo/radiation is sorely needed. It could make life a lot easier for a lot of rectal cancer patients who are required to do either neo-adjuvant chemo/rad or adjuvant chemo/rad.

I tested the Cavilon Spray to see whether or not it is sticky and it doesn't appear to be though I used an almost empty bottle. I think that I can try using it this evening.

I'll do a test with the wipes as well.

Quite a bit of difficulty yesterday as I went to my mother's house and had to stop twice on the way down and twice on the way back up. I think that it helps to have a list of clean bathrooms along the way for any kind of trip. You really get to learn the small conveniences of bathrooms like a hook to hang up your jacket or bag, a table to put things on and someplace to put your supplies. MacDonalds bathrooms are generally awful but fortunately our office is on the way. I use my gym memberships partially for the good bathrooms.

I don't think I have a book in me, a pamphlet or power point maybe. We do need more. I can't get over the damage done and still dealing with it almost 9 months after finishing chemo.

So true, so true! I have been doing a fair bit of driving on the PA Turnpike this past summer and have thought the exact same thing, Mike (I hate when they don’t have a hook—like how hard is it to install a little hook in each stall?!). First of all, every restroom on the PA Turnpike has easily 20 stalls (well, I can only speak for the females, but I am assuming a decent amount for males as well) so that is nice—never a wait and so spread out you don’t feel like people are out there waiting on you to finish while you may need extra time in the stall. But they also have a little “shelf” I guess you would call it that can come down as well so if needed you could put any supplies on that. You really do start to become a bit of a bathroom stall snob—and prior to all of this, I rarely ever used a public restroom! :lol:

The level of pain I'm seeing on a regular basis seems to be increasing. There's blood on the pads and sometimes on the toilet seat and sometimes intense pain if I sit too long. I can feel it coming, sometimes from gas and sometimes from waste. Maybe I had this before or maybe it was pushing too hard or maybe stools too hard. At any rate, it's resulting in a fair amount of misery.

I did manage a two-hour nap this afternoon and ate dinner and feel slightly better but still a bit weak. I may need a bit more food and definitely more water. Anyone else run into this stuff? Pain while passing gas (it starts out not being painful but eventually gets there) or when just trying to go?

I'm on the Facebook group now and I think that I have my setup with enough walls to ensure sufficient privacy. The group is a firehose of data and I think that it will take some effort to keep up but I have a few concrete things to try now.

The thing that hurts me the most about finances is paying for my son's Boy Scout activities. They try to keep the prices low and do some fund raising, but it is not enough. I sent him to camp 1 week this year. I really wish I could have sent him for 2 weeks. He thinks it was his best week of camp ever. They also do fun, low cost camping trips (weekends) right through the winter. He has been approved for the World Jam next summer and is working toward that. But selling popcorn...it isn't going to make it! Boy Scouts has been great for us. I have been unable to participate. We lost my Dad in Dec. and one of my sister's in June (lung cancer). Thankfully he had a place to go every week and have some fun. I would love to volunteer but extremely painful fecal incontinence holds me back. I never can plan if I will have a good day or not. I get the Sandostatin shot and take up to 8 Lomotol a day. I can not eat raw vegetables or fruits. At 5'8", I vary between 104-106 pounds. Well, I have a follow up with the dietician tomorrow. I do want to get stronger, but to do that...my body needs to hold on to a meal for longer than a few hours.

I tried the Cavilon spray this morning and it was rather clumsy applying it. It is a little sticky to start out with but it gets slippery after a while. It does provide quite a bit of comfort. I suspect that there may be a bacteria build-up because the Depends are made from plastic and don't breathe while the CVS Diapers are porous to some degree outside the critical zones. There is definitely less irritation but this kind of spray bottle would take some getting used to. I suspect that this is why there are creams for this purpose. So the Cavilon Cream and Calmoseptine Ointment will arrive next week and I have Lantiseptic in my cart. The latter is used in hospitals as a skin protectant product and one of the comments says that it is very slippery. I think that I should be in good shape with these three products to try out.

I also took an Imodium this morning and the GI system has been quieter though that may be due to me eating less today. I see the cardiologist in three hours and would rather the GI system take a break for a while.

One thing that I noticed - if I get into a deep sleep, then the GI system is quiet. I assume that's a normal bodily mechanism.

I had a talk with my manager about my health issues. My coworkers thought I was nuts coming in after getting discharged. I mentioned that many take short-term disability for a while, and some take long-term disability. I also indicated that I want to work on our big project this fall and she indicated that we may be getting more resources for the project. I think that there are products (meds, herbs, stuff) that make things better; maybe even a lot better. I hope to get there soon.
