Hello everyone and a big thank you for the welcome. My "best half" was diagnosed with stage 111 (2 of 10 nodes)at the time of his resection (temp ileostomy) after waiting close to a year for a diagnosis (4 months to see a gastroenterologist and another 7 months before a colonoscopy. (then waiting 2 months for surgery)He is close to finishing up round 2 of 5FU/leucovorin...2 more rounds to go. This site has been remarkable seeing how supportive you all are to each other- and the sharing of information is outstanding. I consider it an honour to be welcomed to the board- thank you Lisa Rose for taking the time for your post.
