I had stage iii-b colon cancer and the tumor was removed surgically. I went to 2 oncologists who suggested different chemos: folfox vs. Capeox. I know that folfox is the standard. Does this mean it's better?

I had stage iii-b colon cancer and the tumor was removed surgically. I went to 2 oncologists who suggested different chemos: folfox vs. Capeox. I know that folfox is the standard. Does this mean it's better?

Equivalent choices: Capox is really an equivalent regimen to folfox. The difference is that the folfox regimen uses a drug (5- fluorouracil) that is given intravenously via a pump, wile the other regimen utilizes Capecitabine which is an oral version of the same drug which is activated preferentially in the tumor cells. There is a slight difference in the schedule, but these are really considered interchangeable.

Severe dysplasia: Cin 3 is a serious condition. Please speak to your md. If you would like a second opinion, a gynecologic-oncologist (gyn-onc) is a great resource. Voice your concerns to your provider. You deserve answers.

What is the average life expectancy of someone with Stage III or IV spinal cancer?

What is the average life expectancy of someone with Stage III or IV spinal cancer?

More info needed.: Most likely it's not "spinal cancer", which would be a cancer that started in the spine, but a cancer from somewhere else that has spread (metastasized) TO the spine. If so, it's still the cancer of where it started (bone or breast or prostate, etc.). Also, stage III vs. Stage IV have different enough treatment and prognosis that they should be considered separately; worth learning this detail).

I have gd III MCL tear lt knee and fracture lateral tibial condyle since 2 weeks. Can I move my leg or should I wear the knee immob 24 hours.?

I have gd III MCL tear lt knee and fracture lateral tibial condyle since 2 weeks. Can I move my leg or should I wear the knee immob 24 hours.?

Follow directions: This injury can be unstable and proper immobilization will potentially avoid otherwise unnecessary surgery. My opinion is that your orthopedic surgeon will eventually put you into a hinged brace to allow for range of motion without side to side movement. Expect the first six weeks to be more strict guidelines and after six weeks guidelines will be lifted as healing dictates.

What happens if I think the worse scenario very often and I feel this is deteriorating my life. How do I stop it and interact more with life?

What happens if I think the worse scenario very often and I feel this is deteriorating my life. How do I stop it and interact more with life?

Anxiety Disorder: Anticipation of worst happening (even if it is exceedingly unlikely) is a symptom of anxiety disorder. This is a distortion of the normal fight or flight response every human is endowed with. Your brain seems to be wired for flight for any environmental stimulus, no matter how trivial. If this is so, see doctor for exam & to formulate a therapeutic plan to include counseling & medication as needed.

How many chemotherapy cycles before we can tell whether it is working or not? (fec protocol, stage III breast cancer)

How many chemotherapy cycles before we can tell whether it is working or not? (fec protocol, stage III breast cancer)

Pre or post?: If you get it before surgery to shrink the tumor, you can usually see a change after 2 or 3, sometimes even with just one. If you are getting it after the surgery (adjuvant) to keep it from coming back, then there is no way you can tell short term if it did the job. Only time will tell if the tumor relapses or not. Good luck either way and best regards.

Risk of blood clot: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

What does chondrimalacia patella grade III mean?

What does chondrimalacia patella grade III mean?

Knee cap wear & tear: Chondromalacia refers to wearing away of the thin layer of cartilage that lines the ends of the bones in a joint. Hyaline cartilage is a highly specialized material that is 100x slicker than wet ice on wet ice! Hyaline cartilage is only about 5mm thick in most joints, and it can wear away as we age. Most times when we use the term chondromalacia patella, it refers to a pain syndrome of the knee cap, or patellofemoral pain syndrome. Its usually best treated with pt to strengthen hip flexors.
