The other tumor (T1) removed six weeks ago, at the juncture of the right and transverse colon, had not even become a T2 tumor, hadn't invaded through the colon wall, and no lymph nodes were cancerous. This means that his cancer essentially was/is a LEFT side cancer, which has different properties from RIGHT sided colon cancers.

Tupelo honey, what supplements did you take? I saw your comments a while back on the What Supplements Do You Take? thread but I would really appreciate it if you could repeat here. Thanks!
First bite for me too. If I wait even an hour since last eating anything, it comes back. Mine is very painful but I've learned how to not create so much pain. I let the food rest on the back of my tongue for a bit. Only creates a little first bite pain. I move it from one side to the other and it helps to ease into actually biting down. After that first one is down, I can continue as normal. If I forget and just bite down...Oh My Lord!

Did you speak to your oncologist about the l-carnitine supplements? I am wondering because I am reading about Acetyl l-carnitine (this appears to be the recommended form for neuropathy, not the l-carnitine form) and it's an antioxidant that increases ADP production. I've read that antioxidants may interfere/counteract chemo and they should be avoided while having treatment. What did your oncologist think about this?
