I have not been on lately, I never posted much. I have read more. I always felt this was a place you could ask anything, and someone has always been where you. I had my three year's in remission July 2006, I was told to join the living. I am stage IV, I will spare you the details again. I have a web page. I went for routine check lab, PET & CT scan the last week of January. My cancer has re appeared, it is inoperable this time. (multiple hypodense nodes in the intraaortocaval region) I have the courage to try again, just trying to decide what! Please remember me in your prayers.

    God bless you

    i remember you Jean; guess it's always a personal choice -all we can do is support what you decide to do..it's all in God's hands anyway if you believe. personally I would rather believe and discover I was right than not believe and find that I was wrong..you are in my prayers. bud

    Jean: I am so sorry the cancer has come back, but you beat it before, and you can do it again. Be strong and don't give up hope. You will be in my prayers. Monica

    Hi Jean,

    Being a newbie I didn't know you from before. I'm so sorry you are having to deal with the beast again. So glad to hear that your courage is intact in spite of all this. Best of luck to you!

    Please keep us posted on what course of treatment your doctor recommends!

    Jean-

    You've already won - you're ready for the fight and you know what to do. I am a newbie so I wasn't here for your previous struggle (and I just started posting more often!), but you have so many supporters and stories of hope here - you know you can do it and think about how your own story inspires so many others.

    You are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry. But, I hope you can find encouragement in knowing that there are several new drugs to help. It appears 5fu/Leucovorin worked well for you the 1st time, just wait til your cancer comes up against Folfox, Avastin, and some of the newer drugs.

    Good luck in making the right decisions and tolerating whatever that might be.
