    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): This one really hurt...and still does. Limited use of my right arm. It's getting better, yet I didn't expect such pain.

    Hi there, I'm about ready to start FOLFOX. What can you tell me about your experience that will help me prepare? Thanks!

    Decision Point (Chemo or Natural Medicine): My body has had so much poison pumped into it that I really don't want to do chemo again. I've started on natural medicine about a year ago. Can I cure this cancer with healthy alternatives to chemo???? Where do I go to find out?

      I know how you feel. I am struggling with this decision myself. I have Stage 4 colon cancer. After my last CT scan, I found out I have mets to lungs, liver, and spine. Was told I would have chemo every 2 weeks for the rest of my life. I am still deciding what to do.
      I did FOLFOX 3 years ago, and developed an allergic reaction to oxylaplatin on my 11th round out of 12.
      Hope you find the answers you are looking for.
      What natural meds have you tried?

    Oh No (I have cancer.....again?!!!!!?): This is my third time with cancer. Two different breast cancers (23 yr apart) and now colon cancer (w/Braf Mut) unrelated to other cancers.
