      I am so sorry to hear about your dad and the false hope the doctor gave him. It sounds to me like the cancer had metastasized in his lymph nodes 2-3 years ago for it to be all over his body now. I am praying for your dad and family. ????

        Sorry to hear you were diagnosed with colon cancer and have a large spot on your liver. I was diagnosed in 2013 as stage 3A. I had surgery and 2 out of 14 lymph nodes were affected, I have been on chemo since then. I hope your prognosis is good after talking with your doctor, my advice to you is to stay positive, get the best medical treatment you can, keep notes of everything and do your research. Praying for you an...

          Sorry to hear that she is experiencing harsh side effects from the FOLFIRI and you have an active 4 year old that needs her mother. Happy to hear that you are doing the best you can to make her comfortable. The best thing for me when I was on FOLFIRI was to flush to chemo out of my system as quickly as possible, by making sure I had good bowel movement, and plenty of rest and quite time. I took stool softeners, ate ...

            I had a colonoscopy in 2013 and the biopsy was malignant, my doctor suggested surgery the next day since I was already cleaned out, but I chose to wait 3 days to get my affairs in order. After the surgery, 2 out of 14 lymph nodes were infected and I was diagnosed with stage IIIA colon cancer. I underwent 12 rds of chemo and was in remission for 14 months, I have since been on and off chemo and I am now staged as IV. ...

              Thank you for responding Lesliegbm, and congratulations on being in remission for two plus years! I was diagnosed with stage lllA colon cancer in 2013, had a colectomy and 12 rounds of chemo. After that, My dr said there was NED for 14 months! It came back and I was upgraded to stage iv. I’ve been getting chemo on and off since 2014. My dr said I will have to remain on chemo from now on, because it comes back every t...

                    You should contact the doctor or surgeon regarding your husband constant vomiting. What Nausea meds is he taking? Maybe the Dr can prescribe something stronger. I get nauseated after chemo, nausea meds emend and aloxi given through my port works for me. I pray your husband gets better soon so that he can start treatment.

                      The one thing I’ve learned about cancer is there is NO respect of age. I was 57 yrs old when i was diagnosed with stage 3b colon cancer in 2013, the tumor measured 3.1cm. Two out of 12 lymph nodes were infected. I had a colectomy, then 12 rounds of chemo and was in remission for 14 months. The cancer showed up again in my pelvic area and I went another 12 rounds of chemo. Three months later the cancer attacked my o...
