Looks like I might participate in the TRIASSIC-study to help compare TAMIS versus ESD for resection of non-pedunculated rectal lesions

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/05/06

As a follow up of Some links on removing colon tissue with Endoscopic Full Thickness Resection (EFTR), it looks like I might participate in the TRIASSIC-study to help compare TAMIS versus ESD for resection of non-pedunculated rectal lesions.

The reason I document is my earlier Tweet: [Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Meh result of the colonoscopy: – 2 polyps of ~1cm size removed – 1 polyp of ~2.5cm could not be removed now: it is in an odd place (grows over the LAR-resection seam) and needs team-discussion on what to do in a future procedure (hopefully colonoscopy, maybe larpscopy) 1/”

So I archived most links from searching for EDS and TAMIS (further below) plus the whole content of the [Wayback/Archive] TRIASSIC-study:

A multicentre, randomised controlled trial comparing TRansanal minimal InvAsive Surgery (TAMIS) and endoscopic Submucosal dIsseCtion (ESD) for resection of non-pedunculated rectal lesions.

How to survive cancer: an inspiring story by Désirée Hairwassers

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/04/29

Today is my birthday. I am turning 53 today. But when writing this I’m not sure I am what we Dutch call “schoon”. It is a Dutch euphemism that I dislike, but still accidentally use. The thing is that one never knows for sure to be really clean from he signs of cancer metastases.

While writing this post, I’m in a melancholic mood during a period of depression/burnout after all the treatments. I am reflecting on if and how I survived the metastasised rectum cancer and lived through all other stressful things that started somewhere early 2017.

So I was glad to find the tweet below on the edge of spring that inspired me, I originally made me draft this post as being titled

“Surviving cancer is not a fight or a battle, it is about having luck or misfortune”

It was a (now by posting this link) pointer back to Having cancer is not a fight or a battle, it is about having luck or misfortune.

But it doesn’t do the artwork of Désirée Hairwassers justice, so here is her tweet:

[Wayback/Archive] Dees on Twitter: “Het lijkt mij ook een gepast moment om jullie mijn boek te presenteren. In het Engels, want gericht op de hele wereld. Dun boek. Dat moet een bestseller worden….. ” / Twitter

Translated: “I also think it is an appropriate time to present my book to you. In English, because aimed at the whole world. Thin book. That should be a bestseller”

And her video about “How to survive cancer: The inspirational journey of Désirée Hairwassers” showing the book. A very focused book (if it does not show, click on her above tweet to see it):

Some links on removing colon tissue with Endoscopic Full Thickness Resection (EFTR)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/04/25

Since they are likely to perform an FTR/EFTR procedure to remove a ~2.5cm sized polyp growing inside the colon on top of the LAR (Lower Anterior Resection) surgical suture line, below are some links, partially in Dutch, partly in English.

Since they are related to my LAR-syndrome symptoms:

Terugkijken: publiekslezing Kwaliteit van Leven

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/04/11

Een paar weken geleden was de [Wayback/Archive] Terugkijken: publiekslezing Kwaliteit van Leven.

Aan die afdeling heb ik momenteel veel, want ik zit in een flink dal na mijn (voorlopig succesvolle) behandelingen tegen uitgezaaide endeldarmkanker. Ik ben schoon, maar het hoofd is vol (ook met alle andere dingen die er sinds 2017 in ons leven gebeurd zijn) en ook fysiek is het enorm wennen aan een lichaam dat zich heel anders gedraagt dan voor ik kanker kreeg.

[Wayback/Archive] Publiekslezing Kwaliteit van Leven 15 maart 2022 – YouTube

Steeds meer mensen overleven kanker of leven langer met kanker. Tijdens en na de behandeling kunnen patiënten te maken krijgen met verschillende lichamelijke en psychosociale problemen. Daarom staan in ons Centrum voor Kwaliteit van Leven gespecialiseerde professionals klaar om patiënten en hun naasten te helpen bij problemen op lichamelijk, psychisch, sociaal en spiritueel gebied. Om deze patiënten in de toekomst nog beter te kunnen ondersteunen, doet het Antoni van Leeuwenhoek ook wetenschappelijk onderzoek in dit centrum. Tijdens deze online publiekslezing praten wij u bij over wat wij doen in het Antoni van Leeuwenhoek op het gebied van Kwaliteit van Leven.

Via [Wayback/Archive] Antoni v Leeuwenhoek on Twitter: “Wat doen wij in het Antoni van Leeuwenhoek op het gebied van kwaliteit van leven? Diverse specialisten van het AVL en Stichting ‘Ziek Gelukkig’ kwamen tijdens onze publiekslezing aan het woord. Bekijk de lezing terug ➡️… #hetAVL #publiekslezing #ziekgelukkig”

Ook [Wayback/Archive] Stichting Ziek Gelukkig (@ZiekGelukkig) / Twitter kwam aan bod.
