I would like to introduce myself as Nicolate. My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer Feb 2006.
A large tumor was removed with 2 nodes involved.
She decided no chemo. Her Stage is IIIB. Her CEA level went from 3 in March to 32 now. As her only living relative I am frightend by what to expect. The docs seem unable or unwilling to provide a prognosis so that I can plan for this journey. What pain is involved, how is it managed, what can I do for her psychologically, etc. If anyone has gone down this path, I would appreciate and feedback. Scared and alone.
