New on here and looking for support.  There aren't any groups  in the area where I live.  I have been looking for survivor stories to help keep me positive and stumbled upon this website.  I had 18" of my colon removed on 3/5 , had PET Scan today, Chemo starts on 4/10.  I have never been so terrified in my life. I try to stay away from all websites that give survival statistics.

Welcome!

I was dx'd Stage IIIB in Jan. of 2009.  I had 18 inches of my colon removed and a few lymph nodes positive for cancer.  All was well until last Feb. when a tiny spot was found on my liver. Had a resection and NO follow up chemo after that.  It's been over 4 years since my original dx and I'm praying for many more.  

Best of luck! You'll do fine with chemo. I completed all 12 treatments of FOLFOX. 

Did you have a CT scan prior to surgery?

Thank You Patch,  Yes I had a CT Scan originally at a hospital in Jan at the beginning of symptoms. Lower stomach pain and the hospital diagnosed me with Diverticulitis and Colitis, which wasn't the case upon having the colonoscopy that found the cancer.

No chemo after finding spot on liver?  Did they get everything?  Are you still show clean?

"budwig.com or chrisbeatcancer.com" Are you sure you're not a salesperson for these sites? Every comment you've been making out of the blue are pushing those websites. That's a no-no ya know...

Why no bio? Why is it that every treatment you've "done" is evil? Please spam elsewhere...you're not helping Nor is it appreciated.

Please don't let the comment about the 50 chest X-rays throw you. Modern scanners are much safer that those that are being demonized by the website diet pusher...

Well this is about same as my husband, he had 12" removed in 2008 was stage 2, no colostomy bag.    He had a 3 year remission.  He has kinda been in a battle for last 12 months but holding his own.   He now has a colostomy bag and just finished chemo, but he is also just back in remission.  The chemo is bearable you just have to limit your traveling due to chemo schedule.

Everyone is different & you may get a complete remission, however, the doctors will monitor you very carefully.  The goal is to stay ahead of the cancer.   Try not to be terrified sounds like it hasnt spread and you should do well.

other thread ... "does positive support really happen on here?"

Yes, it certainly does. Each and every day people log on and will respond to your questions and concerns.  Every person who posts is surviving and we have some members who are no longer in treatment with no evidence of disease that still post so that they can support those that are new on their journey.

Being terrified, as you said, is a very real and valid emotion with a cancer diagnosis. Your journey is just beginning and you are also recovering from your recent surgery. Right now, you probably feel a great sense of loss of control over your life. Once you actively begin chemotherapy you will feel that you are fighting back and more in control.

If you share with us what type of chemotherapy you will be receiving starting on 4/10 we may be able to give you some advice. Also, did you have colostomy?  If so, many on the board have and can be helpful there. Do you live in a small town, you mentioned lack of support.  Are you seeing an oncologist at a large hospital?

As for survival statistics, don't be afraid ... read them, don't run from them ... and then put them aside. Remember that they are just numbers composed of averages that are for the most part from out-of-date studies.  Each individual is quite unique as to how they respond to treatment.

Your picture is lovely.  I am sorry you have to be here seeking support ... but, yes ... positive support really does happen here.

Breath deeply and have courage. -- Cynthia

Welcome!

 

Look at the Wellness Comunity.  It is another positive forum and group.  The Wellness Comunity has Nutrition, relaxation, vitamin, menatal health support, etc....  The Original Wellness Comunity is in Westlake California.  It is FREE, and there are many through out the nation.   

 

We live in Small Mountain Comunity and we have local cancer support groups. May be speak with a local minister and see if they are interested in starting a group.  Just a thought.

Best Always , mike

I joined up on here this month and have gotten lots of support and some good info.

I was dx stage 3 about 3 weeks ago. I start chemo/radiation Monday and I too am afraid.....of the unknown. Luckily we have a Gilda's Club about 5 minutes from my house and they provide tons of support. The people on here will provide support also but I think it might be good to look further for more local support.

I don't know if I am supposed to do this....but as I learned a long time ago it is easier to ask for foregiveness than ask for permission....google Imerman Angels. They can help provide a "mentor"....someone that had gone through exactly what you have. Read the website and see what you think. They came highly recommended from Gilda's Club.

I just signed up to be a mentor at Imerman Angels.  I wish I had someone to talk to one-on-one who had been through the experience when I was going through it,   What a wonderful idea.

I didn't discover this forum until I was through my treatments and had learned a lot of things of the the hard way while going through it.  I'm glad newbies are reaching out here on this board to get support.

My wife was initially stated as stage III .  One of the things that I was glad is that we started asap, some basic off label items, that are poorly utilized, or even understood, in the US.  

Cimetidine around surgery, perhaps even right now, is really important for 2/3+ of the advanced CRC cases. Perhaps a difference of years or even cure. The cimetidine even for 7-30 days near surgery, appears to make a big dfference in life expectancy amongst people who otherwise recur, but can't be used later during FOLFOX days.  

Vitamin D blood testing and several months of high dose vitamin D3 - my wife did 16,000-17,000 iu for about 2 months, before chemo, then ca 12,000 iu per day while on chemo.  Turned out 12,000 iu per day on chemo was too low for her, thank goodness her intake wasn't the more common 2000-5000 iu. Since then we have utilized many of the off label treatments like low dose aspirin, flavinoids (see LEF) and immune boosters (e.g. PSK).   

Starting out, I read several Life Extension cancer articles as if my wife's life depended on their information.  In fact I'm pretty sure it did.  She turned out to be on the pessimistic side of stage IV, but is doing well today despite all professional pessimism.   I credit the "extras".

Thank You all for your responses.  My chemo drugs are going to be FU-5 and Eloxitin.  I live in Port Charlotte Fl andamazing they only have a support group for Spanish Speaking people.  The other closest group is in Venice FL and everyone is in their 80's.  I can't imagine.. I am the youngest in my area... LOL

I did read on one pamplet for the drugs not to drink anything cold before or after chemo but the other drugs saysto put ice chips, popsicle or something cold in your mouth during treatment to help prevent the mouth sores.  Any advice on this?

I love it when advice contraditcts.

Nothing cold after chemo, but popsicles and ice chips for mouth sores. YAY! 

I do get that constricting feeling when I swallow anything cold, this last for several days after chemo. 

Everyone responds differently to this cold aversion, so play it by ear. A little sip of comething cold and you'll know it. I got it the very first chemo session. BUT, I can sip room temperature drinks, as long as its a sip those first few days. 

Good luck with everything.

As for the support group. I wonder if someone young and energetic like youself could add a little life to the group. It must be SO HARD to be in your eighties and going trhough chemo. I wouldn't do it myself, but the will to survive runs strong.  I would join just to see if I could lift anyones spirits (and probably find they lift mine).

I had extreme cold sensivity during the same chemo treatment and could only drink warm or hot liquids. I used baking soda toothpaste and also rinsed my mouth frequently with warm baking soda water. I never had any mouth sores. Hope this helps you too!

Biotene toothpaste and mouthwash helped, but once I got sores, I was given a prescription for Viscous Lidocaine and while it tastes TERRIBLE, it offered great relief!  I totally agree with the other poster about having a positive attitude. I found there were a few negative people in the "chair room", if I couldn't get their attitude turned around I would put on a headset and listen to my favorite music to tune them out. Best to you!

Lots of new people joininlargely so I hope you are able to offer each other support as you take these early stages in all this. Starting chemo is hugely daunting and confusing. You are right about the cold advise. In truth most people do get a degree of loss of tolerance of cold both in the mouth and fingers and toes with oxaliplatin. For me it was short lived for a few days post infusion but can lead ontolonger term problems of neuropathy if persistent in thefingers and toes so do keep and eye on it and report to your oncologist. This probably overrides the advise about 5fu. In truth I did the combination for a time last year and found it fairly toleraBle for several cycles then had a funny allergic reaction to the oxaliplatin and had to stop it. Have to say a good number don't tolerate all the planned  oxaliplatin so play it cycle by cycle. The 5fu on the other hand is often well tolerated.

Do try to keep as much of life as normal as possible and spend this time getting your head around the situation and your knowledge of everything up. Is a huge thing to happen but you have timeknow toadjust both physically and psychologically.

Keep asking questions and I hope you find the support you are seeking here (ignore any arguing and odd spamming that is happening just now- its not always like that!).

I had problems with cold items and liquids from the beginning to the end but got used to having drinks room temperature. 

There is also a website called WhatNext you may want to look at for cancer patients and survivors for support.  Lots of people sharing their journeys.  Hang in there!!!

Welcome!  I'm also stage 3B and have had 3 Folfox treatments so far.  I can't drink anything cold at all.  Ever!  Everything has to be room temp which.  I'm assuming you're getting the port.  I was scared to death to get that but it is a life saver.  Also, I was terrified the first time getting chemo.  It doesn't hurt at all when they access the port and I am terrified of needles.  One thing that helped with the nausea was my onc told me to start taking the nausea pills the day I started chemo, not when I started to feel nauscous.  That helped so much!  Now I take the nausea pills for about 5 days in a row and I'm good.  This is a great forum for support and everyone has been very helpful.  Good luck and keep us posted.  Hugs.....Cynthia

I too was recently diagnosed Stage 3 T2N1 and had about a foot of my colon removed on 2/19/13. I began Xeloda this morning very scared as well. Being new to this the only thing I have found to help with all the reading on the internet is I stay away from older material,  there have ben many positive changes in the last 10 years. The other thing my Dr. told me about stage 3 survivor stories is that they (we) are active initially then as we get better and recieve clear scans we fall off these message/support boards and get on with our lives. So it is a little harder to find stage 3 survivor stories.

Dan46,

I just wanted to chime in on your comment about stage 3 survivor stories.  I was diagnosed in Oct. 2004 with Stage 3C at age 44.  No family history, not even any symptoms to speak of.  Had a colectomy (about 1/3 of my colon removed) and doctors found 13 of 19 positive lymph nodes.  Went through 6 months of chemotherapy.  It has been almost 9 years - all of my checkups have been clear.  I was on this site often, and found lots of informative posts and wonderful support.  I strayed away, and haven't been on here in awhile.  I'm definitely one of those stage 3 survivors who "fell off the message board".  Please everyone, keep your spirits high.  There are success stories out there.

Thanks so much for posting your success story.  I've only been out of chemo since September and have been so scared of a recurrence or some kind of new cancer.  It is so good to hear these kind of positive stories.

Hi Deena,

     I was diagnosed stage III b in February 2010.  I had two feet of my colon removed and chemotherapy for 6 months.  The doctor didn't even have to tell me what stage for I have been a Disability Examiner for the Federal Government, for 33 years and I knew.  I am thankful for so far, everything has been clear.  I must admit, that I do need to exercise a little more.  I know all of your fears, but that is normal.  I really tripped in the beginning for I have been told that my family carries the gene for CRC and it took the life of my mother.  However, I remain positive , my faith is strong and the people on this website have been most kind.  We are here for you and have a blessed day.

Sincerely,

     Karen

I have not used this discussion forum enough but just want to tell you I am cancer free since 2009.  It would have been nice to talk with other people going through the experience as I do remember how difficult the treatments were and there are some worst bad days.  But, hang in there and you're not alone.  There are better days ahead and I'm proof of that.

Never give up and remember, you are not alone.  Everyday I see a new day, I am happy.  I will turn 60 this year and I plan on going to Vegas, for I have never been there.  My friends keep me active and I just enjoy each day. So Trubrit just think, you have a lot of living let to do and a lot of people to inspire.  Have a great day.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3c Colorectal Cancer in July 2011. I had surgery in August to remove about a foot of my colon. I finished 6 months of Folfox chemo a year ago. I have had several CT scans, two colonoscopys and alot of bloodwork since and as of today am totally cancer free! BELIEVE that you too will survive this! I know you are scared! I was too and there were days when I would get discouraged and think I couldn't take one more day. But I am here to tell you that YOU CAN DO IT!!! Focus on the positive things in your life. Surround yourself with people you love and with activities that lift your spirits. Keep your mind occupied with pleasant things. Don't allow yourself too much time to sit and think. For me the thing that kept me strongest was my faith in God. I will be praying for you. If you have any questions or need some advice as you go through this journey, don't hesitate to ask! I will be happy to help any way I can. Don't ever forget, YOU CAN DO THIS! Just BELIEVE!

I was Dx'ed on 1/13/12 (Friday the 13th by the way) with stage 3b colon cancer, 3 nodes and signet cell.  I had the right hemicolon surg on 1/31/12, then 6 months of chemo.  Was disconnected August 24, 2012.  I still have some issues with chemo-induced neuropathy, otherwise I am thrilled with each and every day I wake up.

Things that bothered me before - who cares.  I want to be happy, help people where I can and appreciate the beautiful life I have been given.  It is not easy, you may have hard days.  You may not feel well some days - just allow that.  There are more good than bad.

I also had 2 clean scans since then, a small polyp removed this past Jan and my CEA levels are great.  I eat a mediterrian diet that is organic.  I have never eaten better in my life. 

There are wonderful stories on this site.  It helped me many times.

Do not go on google.  Only get info from reputable sources.  Take all the info in and advice in and make decisions that make sense for you.

As for age, I was 49 at Dx, that is young, but there are people much younger dealing with this.

I am 1 year NED (no evidence of disease) this past Jan 31.  Yeah!

All the best.  You will find out that with each treatment, you can do this, you really CAN.

Keep us posted.

Hi,

I am one of those stage III who are no longer active on this board.

I was diagnosed Aug 2005, went through 6 months FOLFOX while working full time.

I have been cancer free since surgery. I have some numbness on the bottom of my toes, but all else is good.

I will agree alot of the stage three survivors drift away from the boards as they get back to a daily life that is not longer centered on cancer.

Good Luck, the chemo is not easy but it is do able, I needed more sleep as I went through treatment so I would say nuropathy and fatigue were my worst symptoms from chemo.

Hello everyone, i am now 9 months after my surgery and chemo rounds. i had stage 3 type c cancer 12-1/2" of colon removed, just had my port removed a month ago, thank god i hated that thing. The first thing is keep a positive attitude during your treatment and life does go on after chemo.. there are lots of things no one ever tells you about. Apples helped me cut through the metal taste in my mouth. personal hygiene biotene tooth paste helped with the dry mouth and i had no sores in my mouth.Watch out for any skin products that have alcohol in them.. this will fast track in the dryness of your skin. some of the other things that helped me was starburst candy when you have your port flushed, and exercise as much as you can during chemo. its tough but just walking down the street and back helps keep up your strength, cold effects do stink warm everything,, being from the northeast and going through this during the winter was not fun. Good Luck and god speed with your recovery

This is a great site for new survivors - there is so much support and wonderful information. I was diagnosed almost 9 years ago with late stage III colon cancer. Had surgery to remove 1/3 of my colan, then 6 months of chemo. All of my scans and tests have been clear since. I'm not on here often, but it was a lifesaver for me for the first 3-4 years following my diagnosis. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Stay strong. If there are any questions I can help you with, please let me know. Take care.

I was diagnosed this past November. I have 3 more treatments left. Each treatment seems to have its own little problems. My first treatmentI had severe diarhea and I ended up losing 14 pounds. The oncologist gave me a medicine which was like Super Imodium and that problem mostly went away. My second treatment I suffered severe nausea but the meds worked in treating it. Other treatments would alternate as to which side effect was worst; neuropathy, nausea. fatigue, headaches.

During my 6th treatment, I had a reaction to the oxaliplatin 5 minutes into the infusion. I became short of breath, my hands and feet began to itch, I was vomiting, and the nurse said my face got as red as a tomato. They gave me Benadryl and something else which basically knocked me out until the treatment was almost done. My 7th treatment was similar as a had another reaction; this time not as severe as they had given me Benadryl in advance to prevent a reaction. They stopped using the oxaliplatin on me. Now cold drinks no longer bother me but I still have severe neuropathy in the hands and legs.

 

This past treatment, my 9th, was better but the nausea was back as they added more 5FU (a bollus? I believe they called it) to the treatment in place of the oxaliplatin. I go for treatment number 10 this Wednesday and I am hoping to return to work finally next week.

Hello, my husband is about halfway through his Folfox regimen and has had some side effects also.  He ended up back in the hospital after treatment 5 with a small bowel obstruction.  They think it was from the cumulative constipation he has had and possibly scar tissue from his surgery compressing the bowel.  It corrected itself without further surgery, but we were worried it was more cancer. 

I'm surprised to read they continued giving you the oxaliplatin with such severe side effects.  My husband's last treatment and the next one are and will be 5FU only (with Lucavorin administered at the oncology center).  They also give him a bolus of the 5FU through his port before the pump gets hooked up.  They said it just gives the drug an extra push, not really sure what it does or why it helps.  He often has a flushed feeling during this.  We are trying to stay on top of the constipation and most likely he is done with the oxaliplatin.  He has not had continued neuropathy so that's one good thing.

He's getting pretty down about the treatment.  The plan now is week to week, so we don't have that "end date" like we used to have.  It was kind of our pot of gold.  The cumulative fatigue is getting to him.  Spring has been late blooming here in western NY but I'm hoping once we can get outside more, it will lift his mood.

Good luck with your last 3 treatments, hopefully we'll all be on the other side of this soon!

Constipation is caused mostly by Leucavorin. Leucavorin slows the bowels down and is the main culprit.

Faith in God or other Gods can heal, along with conventional meds, alternative meds and a HEALTHY diet and EXERCISE.

No conventional treatment?  Chance of spontaneous remission is about 1 in 60000. So it can happen. Whether that is due to prayer, who knows, but faith, positive attitude and belief can impact the immune system. The vatican would need to sponsor a trial I guess to know for sure.

I am a stage 3 colon cancer survivor,I was diagnosed in July 2006 and have remained cancer free since surgery july 20th of that year. I come to this site once in while just to look but I felt the need to write today and give you guys  some hope that you too can remain cancer free and you will,  I will pray for that, me too went through 6 months of chemo, a colonoscopy every year for the first 5 years and of course all the ct and pet scans and all the scanxiety that comes with that, what I can remember very clearly was what my wonderful surgeon told me that I should stay very positive that I will be fine that he thought and I cuote 80% of my recovery was going to depend on that.I always been a spiritual person and my faith in God helped me greatly through those difficult times.

If anyone of you newly diagnosed survivors want to PM me feel free to do so.

God bless you all
