    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...

                Hi guys, Hope all is well with you guys. So, my dad has his last chemo this week but I noticed that he's lost close to 5 kg since the start of his treatment, from 64.7 to 60.0 over a 6 month period. As far as I can tell, his diet has been pretty stable all throughout and he doesn't really have much issues with his bowel movement. He does exercise but not to the point that he over strains himself. I guess my questio...

                  This is a bunch of nonsense. What researchers and doctors will not tell you is that FIT tests usually detect cancer at its later stages, when the cancer has already established itself. Some cancerous polyps do not even bleed and steadilly grow inside the colon wall, further reducing their chances of being detected. Unfortunately, we only found this out from our oncologist after my father was diagnosed, and after the ...

                    Hey guys, Hope you're all donig well.  Just a quick update. We met with my dad's oncologst today and his CT scans were all clear. He said that CEA levels usually go up during chemo so he doesn' ive much credence to that until the treatment is done. He has 2 more cycles left and will be done on March 20th. Thanks for all your well wishes.

                      Hi, I just joined the thread and am so happy to see an actual dietitian here. I have always been a strong believer that a good diet and lifestyle goes a long way, especially in cancer treatment. With this in mind, I wanted to ask you if you've heard anything about the nutritional benefits in colon cancer patients receiving adjuvant chemo, particularly in the role of tree nut consumption. There's been quite a bit of...
