Thanks you guys!
It's good to hear you say "so many people are surviving stage IV these days". It's hard to know how to get that kind of information (changes in survival rates over time, latest findings on efficacy of various chemo's, etc.) and inspiring to know that it's something to realistically
I will share your thoughts with my friend. I like the idea of trying to avoid negative associations with favorite foods - this disease already takes too much from people.
Are there any foods she should definitely avoid? I'd heard that flax seed should be avoided however someone else told her it's okay if it's ground up.
How does one find this information?
I wonder why her colon isn't absorbing nutrients - is this common after resection? My mom and brother both had part of their colons removed (for other reasons - not cancer) and didn't struggle with this.
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. Much love, hope and continued strength to (((all of you)))
