My dad met with the oncologist this a.m. and my mom said the doctor told him that it's not that there is cancer anywhere that we are continuing the chemo it is that there may still be cell alive really to multiply. My das is colom cancer stage 3, 11 out of 19 lymph nodes involded (permanent colostomy, March 2004) What does the doctor mean when he says "there is not cancer" when 11 out of 19 lymph nodes are affected and his overall chance for cure was 20 -30%. I am just a little confused. If anyone ever got news like this or can clarify this a bit for me, it would be appreciated. Do you know of anyone that's cancer spread while they were doing chemo? (just curious).
Thanks so much for taking the time to respond
