    Glad you're doing good. Apologies for your bathroom issues but Im unable to help you on that front. Hope someone on this thread can help though.  Just wanted to tell everyone to stay safe in light of everything that's going on. Stay safe and be positive. God bless.

      Just wanted to see how everyone was doing, been quite a while. My dad just came back from his appointment with his oncologist and it seems that he's doing fine. His CEA is stable and his CT scans came back as normal as can be. Thanks for all your best wishes. Stay healthy and strong,

          Hey, I don't know if your question was directed to me, as my dad was treated with a combination Folfox and Leucorvin (not sure of the spelling) for his chemo. I think you were referring to the maintenance chemo mix a user had poted before. And that is a good idea, just not sure why our oncologist hadn't mntioned this to us before. Thanks and well wishes.

            Hi, Thank you very much for your support and congratulations on your recovery. The latest scans seem to show everything stable. His liver, pancreas and lungs are fine and he did have a colonoscopy a few months back. We try to keep dad as active as possible and stay posistive but it does take its toll at times. You can't hide these thoughts completely but we do try to stay optimistic. Thank you so much for your kind ...

              Hi, Thanks for letting me know and I will certainly ask my oncologist about getting him on maintenance chemo. My dad has limited his sugar intake and we're keeping him as active as we can.  It's amazing the support we get through this forum.  Thanks again and keep up the fight.

                Thanks for the info. That's also what his pncologist told him an his scans look fine. He also had his colonoscopy done last month and they found a few polyps but nothing else. Thank you again and do take care.

                  Wow,  You're a trooper to have gone through this twice. And yes, it's a program I wouldn't reccommend to anyone.  Keep us updated on your progress.

                    Hi, It's great to hear you're doing well 5 years in. My dad had his complications as well, the worst being an early onset of pneumonia 2 weeks after his chemo was over. He has his CT scan appointment 2 weeks from now and his colonoscopy in September. I just hope all goes well. His CEA levels are decreasing but they're still relatively high. It was around 4 before his surgery and then went up to 9 during chemo. A mot...

                      The risk is that these at-home tests are inaccurate and have a tendency to detect cancer late. It is NOT a viable substitute for a colonoscopy and they should not even be reccommending stool tests to patients leading them on to believe that these tests are reliable. The objective is to prevent polys from forming into cancer and the only sure way to do that is through a colonoscopy. If you start bleeding, it's a sympt...
