Sigmoid tumour battle
Hi, I am due for my first chemotherapy on 15th Feb - i guess then it will become more 'real', although I have been through considerable torment with a stent proceedure in my Sigmoida few weeks ago, (1.5 hours on a trolley with only gas!) and still no firm biopsy report after several attempts including from liver (it has spread, not sure how much, I think just a little) The stent took a week at settle, NHS still recomend 'low residue' diet but I have more or less maintained my usual 'high residue' diet for fear of constipation, now my bowel action is best described as 'easy', but not 'unreliable' thank God. Funnily enough, although I am told I have a large tumour in my Sigmoid, the 'waste products' still managed to get past OK, but I guess this is a situation that could get worse. I am told some drugs may be constipating so we will have to cross that bridge when we come to it.
I am going to start on the two regular drugs prescribed for colon cancers, one cell cycle specific and one not and I am told there is very good chance I will qualify for a clinical trial drug which is a 'targeted' therapy. So at this stage I have no idea what will happen or if I will ever be operated on, including one day 'loosing' the stent.
Happy to exchange furtehr information for anyone ion this predicament.
My doctor's office called to tell me that I'm still cancer free! I am still going to keep the October 5th appointment to go over the scan in case to see if it showed anything else. I still don't know what's causing my stomach issues.
Hi. Im new to this group. I am only 34 and have a 6 month old baby 4 year old and 6 year old. I had a colonoscopy in which they found a large mass. I had a MRI right away and am waiting on biopsy results. I have a feeling thisbhas been there for years. Im scared and this waiting is really hard.
On Sept.13th I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer metastasized to the liver. I haven't started chemo yet. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that has any idea what is in store for me. I know not all people are the same or react the same but I would like to have an idea of what's next.
