First of all I'd like to thank EVERYONE who has been replying to me. Your support means the WORLD to me.
Today I went to the oncologist and he told me BASICALLY that the tumor they took out of my colon had properties of being both a carcinoid AND a carcinoma. He said that further tests would be required to determine what kind of treatment would be needed. He told me that if it is a carcinoid that no treatment would be needed and that chemo really wouldn't work on it anyway, but because that is such a slow moving type, that it could be years before I had another occurance.
He said if it was a carcinoma type, that they would be able to treat with chemo. So I'll be off to Roswell Park Cancer Institute so I can leave them a little bit of urine and blood so they can see exactly what they're dealing with. I was also told to bring my CT scans as well as the "block" from the pathology department.
Anyway, I came right out and asked him if it was terminal and he told me no, so that in and of itself was good news. I'm just still trying to stay positive and keep a good attitude about this. If there are any others out there that know something about this, please let me know. Just a bit nervous about all this. Thanks to any who reply.
