We also met with the surgeon today. He confirmed she is recovering remarkably well. Her bowel movements are totally off and she can't control her gas all the time but I guess that's to be expected after rectal surgery. The surgeon said she should be a poster child for rectal cancer because everthing ran so smoothly and he's very pleased with the pathology report.
Anyway...it's been 5 months now and my mom is CANCER FREE!!! YIPPIE. I have the pathology report in my hands and it confirms only one lymph node was effected.
Has anyone ever tried the chemo pills? She'll be on them for two weeks (4 in the morning and 4 at night) then 1 week off for a 4 month cycle.
