    I am from southern Missouri, I also am seeking information regarding the prevalance of cancer common to individuals from this area.  I have determined that in this area there was a large amount of Fallout from the Drift Pattern from Nuclear Testing in the 50's and 60's.  I have survived stomach cancer and and am plagued with skin cancer.  My Mother died from Gastrointestinal Cancer, as did an Uncle, bo...

      Thank you, I'm not looking for sympathy I just want to let others know that because you are offered a solution it does not stop there. Always ask your Doctor what the side effects are, no matter what they are treating you for.

        I read things posted on Cancer Compass quite often, but tonite I feel like venting.  In 2003, my life was saved because I recieved a Kidney and Pancreas.  It was a sucessufull transplant and is still working after 15+ years but NO ONE told me I would be a prime candidate for cancer (my stomach was removed in 2010, stage IV cancer) and I recently underwent my 23rd MOHS Procedure not to mention unco...

            I hear several of you talking about the problem of gas.  It is terrible after a gastrectomy, there are several possible reasons for that.  The first I discovered is that lactose is digested in the stomach, so....  one of the things I discovered and find helps agreat deal is called the FODMAP diet.  It proves that even certain carbes cause gas.  Look it up on Google, if nothing else it is an i...

              There was no chemo, I did not tolorate the chemo before surgery.  There have also been blockages, times when I can't keep much down, I strive to keep my weight up, but I have found that if I keep myself moving I am OK.  Tell your dad to keep his spirits up that is important as any medicine they can give him.

                  Some of the most severe pain I have ever felt came after my cancer was removed.  They took an inch of my esophagus and my stomach.  At first I was treated for angina but after a while the diagnoses was changed to esophagus spasms and I was given dycyclmine (it relaxes the smooth muscles inside the body) It was my miracle drug.  Maybe it will give you some relief.  Sometimes the simple answer works...

                    Jude: Having been through a lot of illness myself. I can identify with your mother.  When you feel really bad for a long time, a day or two of feeling just a little better can make you act and actually feel like a million dollars.  Gladly accept and enjoy the new attitude and energy you see in your mother for however long it lasts.  It is a blessing both for you and her. God Bless both of you! Irene

                      Its refreshing to read about someone with such a good attitude.  Being a survivor of Gastric Cancer I am thankful for every day I wake up and intend to live the rest of my life like it is the last day.  I hope that by living like that I can help just one person thru whatever they are facing.
