Hey everyone. I'm still hanging around reading post and praying for us all every day. Glad to hear from those of you that are NED. My husband had his AAA surgery late last month. Did really well. A little history: Husband dx w/colorectal cancer Oct 03, rad/chemo, surgery, transanal excision, Feb 04, then more chemo (xeloda) for four months. Has been NED the last three times he has had a ct scan, ultrasound and colonoscopy. The AAA was found on the original ct scan (oct 03) that was done to see if the cancer had spread. It had not. We like to say the cancer really saved his life because the AAA could had killed him at any time. It was 5.6 cm.
