Welcome to the SEMI COLON CLUB I hope you enjoy your membership here .
My name is Lisa and yes I am a stage 3 like yourself . However I had 10 positive lymph nodes , and that took me a long time to accept .
Yes , I had a portacath and it was great when it worked even though I had some trouble with mine I would definitely recommend it . It saves so much time and no one poking around looking for veins . Also my treatment was straight 5-FU , I never had a choice but I wish I had . It's been almost 18 months and I feel wonderful again.
