      I took no supplements for the rectal cancer. I do take 1 500mg turkey tail mushroom a day for the PV. It is a natural blood thinner. I am on one 5mg. a day of Ramapril for blood pressure. All my bloods counts are still monitored every 3 months and now I see my oncologist every 6 months. He gets and posts the results of every 3 month visit on the hospitals website. I made no changes to my lifestyle. I fully (glad I re...

        Hi, in early summer 2011, at age 55 I was diagnosed with polycythemia vera. A couple monts later, I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I took this seriously, but kept a possitive attitude through it all. I was put on Fu5 chemo and had 20+ rounds of radiation. Operation was Jan.11, 2012. I went thru a few more months of Fu5. I am approaching 7 years of being cancer free. I was very lucky as the PV will blindside cancer...

          You'll make it! Just keep a positive attitude and listen to your body. Sounds like it already tells you to get your count's checked! I was diagnosed at 55 in 2011, a few months later, diagnosed with Colo-rectal cancer. I don't know the connection with leukemia, but I have an old friend who is still around after leukemia in the mid 90's, Marty Liquori. He's pushing 70 now. Stay strong, best of luck!

              Fill me in on Turkey Tail? My Dad will be 85 in March, getting tested for cancer ( lung) to see if it is spreading. Just checked and Amazon has 500mg Turkey Tail mushroom pills, we talking about the same thing? Thanks,    Dave

                  You already experience what we are going through at our age. Don't know what to tell you to expect. At your age, document what you go through so you can answer your own questions for those in your shoes in the future. Where are you from? Dave

                    5 cherries a day will relieve joint pain due to arthritis. Takes 6-8 mos. to notice it. I experience numbness in my left arm from time to time, toes on both feet are always numb, but that's the result of chemotherapy from the cancer. Some shortness of breath here and there, that bothers me, I'm a former 4 minute miler. I've always been hands on myself, 40 yrs of masonry, now a maintenance worker for the BOE. I grew u...

                      Haven't thought about it, what are the details? My worst problem right now is the itching. I'm 60, don't really want to drop out of the workforce right now. I called my oncologist last Thursday for an appointment to get my reds checked, no reply? I feel pressure in the top of my head. Last draw was Nov. 11. Happy Holidays Dave b
