Hello old timers. It is now 7 years since dx with stage 4 colon cancer (mets to lungs and liver) and I am still here. I know I haven't posted much the last year but I do read many posts. I just had CT scan and shows NED. This is now 1.5 years since my last lung resection as clear. ( 4 lung resections, liver, resection, colon surgery, pulmonary embolisms, chemo). I often don't post because the randomness seems so wrong. I am very grateful and fortunate. It was important to me early that there were chances of some success so here is at least one for now. If I had to credit anything, I did change eating habits, got surgery at every chance I could ( all done at Stanford), stopped suger almost completely, stopped all sodas and fruit drinks, kept working, tried to get negative things away, kept very busy with kids and coaching, take 1 aspirin a day, have a great supportive family, do use prayer frequently, and developed a huge hatred of cancer.
Take care all
