Rectal Cancer news

Sun Jun 05, 2022 7:22 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

The latest NY Times has a piece on attacking Rectal Cancer .

   A Sloane-Kettering Colon Cancer  Trial  has had astonishing results .  The treatment could takes years to perfect  and so would be a bit down the road a long while ....BUT !!  

   A  trial was carried out with 18  Rectal Cancer  patients  a small number of participants  so don't open the champaign yet !! The Rectal Cancer completely " disappeared "  in every single patient ! ! This is the first time ever  a Tumour shrunk to Zero and was  found to be undetectable through  every test they could use .

They seem to believe that this is a giant leap in Cancer treatment  for Rèctal Cancer .  Cancer is such a multifaceted  disease and the " Cure " in this case is just the beginning of a long road  for patients . 

   Let's  hope this is not a manipulated or   overblown   claim ?   It sounds promising . To find  the story  check out below . 

If you google . NY Times Rectal Cancer Remission  / or Cure .  You can read the article .

I wouldn't wish what I went through on my worst enemy.

Sounds like it might be the key to treating each Cancer patient as a unique individual . The  whole article is very interesting . They found a Single Gene Mutation that they have identified will stop Chemo from working , this new TRIAL treatment reverses that and these patients were from that group with the cell mutation . Without this treatment chemo would not have worked and they would have died .  The Cancer cells were gone Totally.  Sometimes flaws are found in Trials . The experiment has to be repeated several times to confirm . They want to offer unique treatment for other causitive Gene Mutations ....eventually .

    Let's hope it's repeatable .  It seems like most people I know who died here on my street had some kind of Cancer . My nextdoor neighbour lost Six Siblings to Cancer and has a Tumour herself now . This is familial so this type of patient with a common mutation .could be cured or at least treated . Great news for future treatment . I hope nobody thought I was being flippant  ...my Dad and his Mother died from Cancer .

I hope this is true. I’m being treated at MSK for  colorectal cancer. In March I had my over 6 hour surgery to remove my tumor. They have been great with my treatment and I actually volunteered in a colorectal study. I hope my contribution is helping.

I donated everything they sliced and diced out of me for whatever research they needed it for. It wasn’t like I wanted to take it home, so why not donate? 🤷‍♂️

I hope this works. It sounds promising. I had rectal cancer and just found out it has metastasized to my lung. I will find out Thursday what treatments I will be having. I went through hell the first time around. I am not looking forward to this.
