    I Tried That

    My oncologist suggested Aspirin a few years ago when I was on chemo in that it helped prevent recurrance.  Like pretty much everything along the way for me for treatments, stats and things that help (other than having good blood work during chemo), it came up short for me.  But it seems like a low risk high reward thing for sure assuming no allergies or reactions to aspirin or another reason to avoid it.

    Aspirin

    I take a daily baby aspirin.  Here is another recent abstract on the same subject: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30252883 

    There are now twenty-nine observational studies describing colorectal cancer (CRC) and post-diagnostic aspirin. Pooling the estimates of reduction by aspirin which are reported as hazard ratios (HR), gives an overall HR for aspirin and CRC mortality 0.72 (95% CI 0.64-0.80).

    Took a baby aspirin after

    Took a baby aspirin after diagnosis, every day since. It didn't prevent two recurrances, but I've also read that the effects come from long-term usage, i.e. ten years. Since I'm at eleven and counting, here's hoping that's true, lol................................................................Dave

    Doctor said No

    My doctor told me no. Guess it's up to them whether they think it is beneficial.  With my low blood count always they didn't want me bleeding out with an additional aspirin that already thins blood.  I've never had a normal blood test since my radiation/chemo.  It's always way below normal.

    Hmm, I wonder if me being on

    Hmm, I wonder if me being on blood thinners could have the same effect.

    Aspirin

    There are now twenty-nine observational studies describing colorectal cancer (CRC) and post-diagnostic aspirin. Pooling the estimates of reduction by aspirin which are reported as hazard ratios (HR), gives an overall HR for aspirin and CRC mortality 0.72 (95% CI 0.64-0.80).

     

    Here's another Aspirin study

    CONCLUSION:

    Aspirin use after the diagnosis of CRC is independently associated with improved CSS and OS.
