My rectal cancer, radiation, its disappearance and a radical life changing surgery

My take, stay a way from surgery too big of a cost at your life..I had stage 3 rectal cancer and I was placed under chemo / radiation for 6 weeks. prior to chemo radiation i was using cannabis oil for over 2 years, which kept cancer at bay, controlled my mood and boosted my appetite. I never lost weight. during radiation I noticed tumor is breaking down as i noticed chunks of tissue coming out me. the MRI post chemo radiation showed clean and no signs of cancer. Interestingly enough the PET scan prior to chemo radiation did not pick up the cancer.

Rectum carcinoma

Hi

Just diagnosed w/anal ca awaiting surgery

i consider me to be a strong woman but Im having trouble dealing 

with this. Had colonoscopy since my dad was diagnosed

with colon cancer earlier this year and they determined he carries 

a gene putting him at high risk. So, my doctor suggested due to 

fam he I should be checked. My gastroenterologist found an

area and biopsied it. It came back as cancer (anal)

i have bouts of uncontrollable crying (I feel like such a baby)

im scheduled for surgery next Tuesday. Please, someone 

give me some hope. I need to hear success stories.

D-Day, One Year Later

Question: 

I am coming up on my 1 year D-Day anniversary and thinking it can't just be another day, but a day for something.  Do I celebrate the lessons I've learned this year or celebrate another year of living?  Or do I retreat on my own to take time to continue to process the whole idea of having cancer? Is a time to celebrate or mourn, or maybe a bit of both.  Anyone every toy with any of these ideas? I'd love to hear other's D-day anniversary ideas.

You Have Cancer

I knew something was wrong when I listened to the message and instead of a nurse's voice on the voicemail, it was my doctor.  I called back immediately already fearing what he was going to say, but somehow already knowing.  I didn't know how it was possible.  It was just a fibroid, right.  Fibroids are benign.  That's what everything I had read about them said.  Well, they are except when they are not.  My doctor said,"The pathology came back on your uterus/fibroid.  You have leiomyosarcoma.  Instantly, tears.  He told me it was something that couldn't be found beforehand.  They did all of

Taste and Smell

Hello every one I'm Cheneve, I'm 2yrs Cancer free. But the side affect is making me crazy. All my food I can't tast, it tast lake matellic I'll losing weight. I try and trick myself since I know how some foods taste. Now that's getting old. I drink a lot of water and forget to eat since it taste bad any way. Now I smell smoke and it's burning my nose bad. I don't smell it outside only when I come home. I wear a mask while I'm in the house. I've never smoked a day in my life. This starting happening very strong as of yesterday.

Cancer Couple, Chapter 5

Today is our 36th wedding anniversary!  We’re enjoying another brief lull in our treatment schedule, which is something we’ve tried to do every six weeks or so… a little getaway, a cruise, a week at the beach or Orlando.  This time we’re flying back to Ohio for a family reunion of sorts.  Rather than more discussion of our cancers and treatments, I thought a bit of background on how we came to be here might be in order.  I had previously mentioned our move to Florida, which is intricately intertwined with our cancer story.

The Journery Begins

I am a 56 year old female and was diagnosed with medullary thyroid carcinoma on June 5, 2017.
 
My story and how was it discovered......
 
When I was 30 (approx 1991), I developed a goiter.  The did nuclear scans of my thyroid, but found nothing and my labs were normal.
 
In 2010, during a regular family practice visit, my provider referred me to an endocrinologist of a general check up on the goiter and to do a general review of my metabolic syndrome.  
 

Endometriod mixed with clear cell carcinoma

I have been diagnosed with endometriod mixed with clear cell carcinoma 2 days ago. I am an emotional wreck. Just turned 40 a few days ago and all I think about is my 8 year old daughter. The more I read the internet the more I cringe. Looking for positive support and a little guidance on how to cope and what to expect.
