Hi everyone -
Usually my postings are very dismal, but I thought I should share some good news with everyone.
My mom (diagnosed Jan 03 with stage III, second local recurrence March 04) met with her surgeon this morning. All the margins from the surgery were clear and 4/4 nodes were negative !!
They are not recommending further chemo. I am a little skeptical about this part. Since she had a recurrence (her chemo was a 5Fu/Lev for six months), shouldn't she have some more chemo. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
