I have just been diagnosed with rectal cancer on Aug 28. The last week has been tough to say the least. I found out from a colonoscopy after I had blood in my stools. I am 36 years old and married with 2 lovely girls (1 1/2 and 4 years old). My wife is a stay at home mum and she has been a pillar of strength for me.
I have my ultrasound, CT scan, radiology and medical oncologist appointments lined up this week and next. My surgeon is recommending radiation/chemotherapy for a few weeks followed by surgery and follow up chemotherapy.
Anyone have any advice on must ask questions for my surgeon and (radiology and medical) oncologists? I am worried that I may have missed something.
