I'm doing chemo even tho I'm stage IIB because the colon cancer was on the blood vessels that take the blood to the lungs, heart, kidneys, stomach.... you get the idea. My CT scan came back mostly unremarkable but I have something "unusual" with my spleen that is not usually seen with colon cancer so now I'm on pins and needles until I can actually talk to the doctor. The person I spoke with said they thought the doctor would recommend a PT scan next. I should hear something from the doctor by next Monday -in the meanwhile, I'm contacting my primary doctor and having her look at the CT scan as well and see if she will tell me more.
Good news is, as I understand chemo, even if the colon cancer has spread to the spleen there is a good chance the chemo will still get it.
