several months ago now. 

I think it happens when the forum experiences allot of fake posts. 

I'll be patient and await your report. Hope all is well.

Sorry to read about John, I know he had mentioned some issues cropping up towards the end of last year.  Had not seen him post since the beginning of the year I think.  Thoughts are with him.

Some of it depends on the type of cancer, the chemo and efficacy.  Some drugs for tumors have issues getting to the brain (a friend of mine was in a trial, cleared up everything but for the brain tumor because of blood/brain barrier).

"cytotoxic medicines delivery methods" is something I just looked for to see what I could find.  A lot of big words I don't understand :

  #########

Wiki (grain of salt) has some information that is fairly straight forward and is my general understanding of things and another spot.

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemotherapy

 Most chemotherapy is delivered intravenously, although a number of agents can be administered orally (e.g., melphalan, busulfan, capecitabine).

 There are many intravenous methods of drug delivery, known as vascular access devices. These include the winged infusion device, peripheral cannula, midline catheter, peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC), central venous catheter and implantable port. The devices have different applications regarding duration of chemotherapy treatment, method of delivery and types of chemotherapeutic agent.[54]

 Depending on the patient, the cancer, the stage of cancer, the type of chemotherapy, and the dosage, intravenous chemotherapy may be given on either an inpatient or an outpatient basis. For continuous, frequent or prolonged intravenous chemotherapy administration, various systems may be surgically inserted into the vasculature to maintain access.[55] Commonly used systems are the Hickman line, the Port-a-Cath, and the PICC line. These have a lower infection risk, are much less prone to phlebitis or extravasation, and eliminate the need for repeated insertion of peripheral cannulae.[citation needed]

 Isolated limb perfusion (often used in melanoma),[56] or isolated infusion of chemotherapy into the liver[57] or the lung have been used to treat some tumors. The main purpose of these approaches is to deliver a very high dose of chemotherapy to tumor sites without causing overwhelming systemic damage.[58] These approaches can help control solitary or limited metastases, but they are by definition not systemic, and, therefore, do not treat distributed metastases or micrometastases.

 Topical chemotherapies, such as 5-fluorouracil, are used to treat some cases of non-melanoma skin cancer.[59]

 If the cancer has central nervous system involvement, or with meningeal disease, intrathecal chemotherapy may be administered.[1]

 Other methods

Medicines usually do not get into the brain or spinal cord very well from the bloodstream. So, to treat some cancers of the brain or spinal cord, medicines may be injected into the fluid which surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This is done by a lumbar puncture when a needle is inserted into the space next to the spinal cord in the lower back.

In certain situations cytotoxic medicines may be given:

 By injection into a muscle.

As a cream which is rubbed on to skin.

As an injection into the chest cavity.

As an injection directly into a cancerous tumour.

You tried to post on my thread and weren't able to? That's weird. This is really interesting NewHere. Chemo cream? Wow. Thank you for posting this!

And could not post without moderator approva - so I could post but it would not show until it passed moderator approvall.  Said they would review etc.  So I started this thread.  Since my reply was not up when I checked a bit earlier, figured I would see if it would take here.  I want to let John know I am thinking of him and also let you know I was trying to post.

And I plan on having yy next cancer is going to be one that all I have to do is think "chemotherapy" and it is gone ;)  (How cool would that be.)  Actually it will not be my next cancer, but the one after that it looks like.  Yippee.

Only time I had trouble posting was slipping in a four-letter word like s**t, which after a while would come back looking just like that. I figured I was giving a mod. something to do......................................................Dave

A little while back all emoji's were being rejected and horror of horrors, I was not able to post my Happy Dancing Man. 

NewHere, I think it was probably the multiple links you added to your post. I had many posts sent off for checking that I had added links too. It hasn't happened to me for a while though.

Very well could have been - I thought about that for a bit but was not sure it was the trigger.  But when we see some spam with the links for pay-per-view and so on, it could be something they flag.  Though mine were not formatted as nicely as the spammers do them Cool  

I may just put in google search "this" or some other short hand to make it easier.  I thought it was important to have the couple of excerpts and links back so people can evaluate a bit.  As compared to me saying "This is what I have seen.  Believe me."  If I was me, I don't listen to what I write either ;)
