Hullo from OZ--I also had a large portion of my descending colon removed and 6 months of chemo.
Welcome to the board--yu have come to the place where all are as "one"
There is a wealth of info here as yu have seen by the 20 replies yu recieved--WOW!!
The chemo--although somewhat unwanted--is tolerable and definately effects each of us in different ways.
Be sure to keep your clinic nurses updated on your progress and do not be afraid to tell them of ANY unusual side effects--even trivial ones--this is most important.
Jen and I wish you well on wednesday.
