In January of this year, I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. I was devastated! I have gone through six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy,I had surgery in which they got it all but I also had to have an ileostomy done. This a permanent thing that I have to live with the rest of my life! I have my moments about dealing with this. Some days are good and some days are bad. It's hard to believe that I have to live with this forever! I am currently undergoing six months of chemo again because they said that some of my lymph nodes tested positive for cancer! I was wondering if anyone is or has gone through this? I am a 36 year old female. I really hope that someone answers this because I have been trying since Feburary to get someone to talk to me about this and I can't seem to get any responses! WHY? I need help just like everyone else in here! Will someone please talk to me?
