    Great Christmas

    Just some thoughts
    Added Apr 12, 2017

    Was the day before Christmas

    I’m the only one stirring

    and so am I

    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.

    Post hemicolectomy diet

    Living with cancer
    Added Mar 20, 2017

    I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon CA. In 2015. Had surgery and 6 months of chemo which ended last April. My digestion just hasn’t worked right since. I have constipation, diarrhea, and nausea at least 3 days a week. I’ve pretty much eliminated dairy and wonder where to go from here. Would love to hear from anyone else with this problem.

    Added Dec 24, 2015

    I had never given much thought to the nature of my demise, should that ever occur. However, if I had conjured up a list of potential causes, cancer would not have even been considered for consideration.
    However, if it had appeared on my list as one of my potential executioners d’ jour, it would have been in the quest of completeness, not becau…

    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.
