I may not make sense, but must try..I'm in hosp, just returned from surgery, and still "under the influence" from drugs, etc. for some reason unable to access e-mail, but can get on web. They just confirmed colorectal lung mets-(small, many, both lungs..) TME w/colostomy Nov 2000, chemo & radiation, no recurrence until now, scared to death, can't talk to Onc until next week, and I'm sitting here going mad..is there anyone with similar history, knowledge, etc. ?
Can you have colorectal recurrence in lungs w/o
cancer in colon or other sites, or do I assume its back in the colon too? (haven't had a colonoscopy for 2 yrs) they found the lung mets in a recent CT-(adominal/pelvic/chest) but other areas were clear.
How do I know it hasn'tspresd to bone, brain,and other areas not covered in CT.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone..thanks, bud
