I wanted to thank Spongebob, Stacey, Lisa Rose, Emily and EFW. As you all know, advice and support is everything when you are going through a tough time. I have been pouring over the research on colorectal cancer for the last five days. I am making some calls, setting up a PET scan, getting in touch with doctors for second opinions, etc. It's exhausting but at least I'm doing SOMETHING as opposed to waiting for the lesions to grow. I am feeling overwhelmed that I have been left to make all these life and death decisions and that there is no medical professional that I can trust. Also, I am nervous and hesitant about investing all my time searching for treatment (which is what I am doing now), that could possibly not amount to anything. What if I regret not spending the time out there and living? Any suggestions???
