        Oh my goodness.  I am so sorry.    So does that mean he has a permanent colostomy bag now?    This is a good site as everyone on here has been through almost everything there is to go throught.  My heart goes out to you both.   How old is your husband?   Getting the cancer out of the colon first and foremost was the best thing you could have done.   There is much good bein...

          Yes my husband's oncologist gave that to him.   You need to ask for it, if your oncologist does not prescribe it, find a doctor who will.  Its the best.

            You are so welcome.   My husband did not survive this terrible disease -- but I know that there is hope, I pray all the time for more and more survivors --  so please feel free to write me anytime. Sandy

              When my husband did the SIR Spheres, he stayed off chemo (per the interventional radiologist) 6 months, as he said that is how it takes for the full benefit of those spheres.   He got a scan after 3 months.    He did end up going 18 months with no chemo due to the success of those spheres.  We all know they are not tauted as a cure, but it can sure be a nice break from chemo.  Good luck with ...

                  Don't be scared.   I assume she had surgery for colon cancer, you didn't say, or what stage she was diagnosed with.   Anything below 5 is considered normal.  Its always good to get check ups, the PET scan will tell what she needs to know, and the colonoscopy so try not to freak out or anything.

                    That is great advice Ryan.   I have been reading Hismum's posts as well.   Getting that original tumor out would indeed make the path easier.   I had a friend who had this disease in Australia and he had great health care, everything my husband had here.   I don't understand why this young many has never been referred to a wound clinic to heal his wounds or why, and especi...

                      Most cancers are not treated the same way and definitely do not use the same chemotherapies, etc.
