I was diagnosed in August 2002 with colon cancer with mets to liver and lungs. My last colonoscopy showed no tumor left in the colon and 2 polyps were removed. My PET scan which was done in August 2003 showed tumors but indictated that they were dead. I am seeing my oncologist tomorrow as I am still undergoing chemo. I was just wondering how long do people usually go thru chemo? I just want to get back to having a normal life(or as close to normal as I can get). I have a 2 year old son and am just anxious to be an active parent again. Does anyone have any information to help me make decisions. I ask my dr. all the time how much more chemo I have to have and I always get the same answear--we don't know that other people who have stopped chemo have had a reaccurance. Does anyone have any advice?
