I'm so glad I found this page! On May 14th, much to my surprise, I was diagonsed with either colon or ovarian cancer, big tumors in both areas. On May 31, 2003, I had emergency surgery and part of my colon was removed, hysterectomy, lymph nodes involvement, and on and on it seemed. Finally they said the words...colon cancer, stage 4. In surgery they removed 99% of the cancer, which I understand is rare. Now I am recieveing chemotherapy (5FU etc) for 6 cycles. Fatigue and anemia seem to be the biggest side effects for me. I hope to become better acquainted with you all. Thanks.
