Hello everyone. I'm new and want to introduce myself to you. The third week of December I had a colonsocopy (my first) and they found a lesion. I met that same day with the surgeon and he was able to schedule surgery for the following week. So...the last week of 2004 I had a right hemicolectomy. They staged the cancer as 2a and said surgery was all I needed.
I have a question...are there others with stage 2 colon cancer who only had surgery (no chemo)? If so, how are you doing and how long since you were diagnosed?
Also, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer 4 years ago. He went through surgery and chemo and is doing fine (relatively).
