My ex-husband was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. From what people are saying I suspect it's stage III (one positive lumph node and 80% obstruction when surgery was done). No colostomy required - had resection and will be having chemo (weekly or every other week) for 4-6 months. With "dynamics" I'm basing this on info from my son and other family, ex won't talk to me. What's a bummer is I was diagnosed with Stage IIIA breast cancer last May. I'm 49, ex is 50.
I'm scared for our 22 year old son. Any advice or information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I know the risks, survival rates, etc for breast cancer but not alot about colon cancer.
