Hi guys, hope all are doing wonderfully well. My dad was diagnosed with stage 3 colon ca this past July. He is currently, thank our good God, NED and is undergoing chemo. He will start round 2 tomorrow and 10 more rounds to go.
I, along with my family, have good and bad days and for some reason, I am having a really really bad day today. When I'm with my daddy I make sure I am nothing but upbeat and supportive, but when I'm alone, the doubts start creeping in on whether or not he'll survive this beast. I guess working here in Pathology doesn't help either. I've worked here as a kid, and up until now have really enjoyed it, but I truly think this place is only making things worse for me. Especially when I see a colon cancer recurrance case, it literally brings me to tears.
I just want to know of all the stage 3 colon cancer survivors out there on this board. It really helps in knowing your success stories and I just hope and pray my dad will be one of them.
