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

Thank you

I'm fairly new here so we don't know each other that much. I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for staying strong and giving all of us inspiration that even though it takes a lot, but good things are possible.

Wishing you fun, productive years ahead and talk to us more. We need as much inspiration we can get.

Take care,

Thats great news. We have some similarities. I will be celebrating 8 years in October. I just had a clea scan which marks 1 1/2 years since my last surgery although it was a liver resection in my case.

Great to see you around and great news, I'm awaiting for November that will be five years for me being in remission, I have my scans next month and even being in remission this long well they still scare the heck out of me. But I don't expect anything bad, so till I hear different that's my way of thinking...

So much for taking the time to post this. That is just great news indeed. And good to know about your diet because since I now have mets on my liver, I am on a ketogenic diet...no sugar, little carbs, some protien and mostly fats. And I meditate, quit my stressful job and spend time in nature...so, you give me hope. Thanks.

Were you initially given a life expectancy from your oncologist?
