Hi Doug - welcome to this board. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer Dec 02. I had chemoradiation followed by surgery in April 03 (resulting in permanent colostomy) then 4 mos chemo (I am stage 3). I also recently had a colonoscopy (and CT scan and ultrasound of liver) and all was clear - yea! Best wishes to you.
