My husband was just diagnosed last week. We are in shock - he is 46, in good health and we have 3 kids - almost 15, 12 and a 10 month old.
He's been through tons of tests, they are seeing a small spot on a bone and now he needs a bone biopsy. Nothing in the liver/lungs and the onc. says it's rare to just be in the bone. It seems that is so, since I can't find anything online about it. He also has some higher up lymph nodes that are "lit up".
Has anyone had rectal cancer that shows up in the bone and not organs?
I'd also really like to hear from long term survivors about treatments and where they were treated. Can we get good treatment at a local hospital?
