I had my first PET before starting chemo soon. My diagnosis was 3 weeks ago-- after surgery-to remove part of my transverse colon showed stage 3 and 21 lymph nodes positive! The good news of the PET is that the cancer is not in the liver or anywhere else. Praise God!!! With that many lymph nodes I sure was worried. However, there still is a tumor in the colon that they had not seen previously with colonoscopy, CT scan or barium enema. We will start chemo anyway and in 3 mos do another colonoscopy-- maybe more surgery. . Any suggestions??? What is a good plan for when in chemo? Suggested diets or exercise plan? I will be on 5FU, leucovorin and oxaliplatin.
