I am new to the group. I am 38 and was diagnosed with rectal cancer last October. I had a port-a-cath installed in November and had chemo and radiation for 5 weeks. Then I rested for 4 weeks before having surgery to remove my tumor.
I am so glad to be here or anywhere right now! I have a couple of questions for the regulars:
How do you live with knowing the cancer can come back?
Has anyone cut down on their hours at work after going thru this? I think my priorities have greatly shifted and am wondering how to tell my boss that I don't want to go back to 60-70 hour weeks.
Thanks! All of your stories are truly inspirational.
