I really am a newbie at all this...both having cancer and getting involved with an on-line support group. I was recently diagnosed with stage IIIb colon cancer. I had colon resection surgery on December 14th and I have my first appointment with an oncologist this Wednesday, Jan 16th. That's when I'll find out what my options are for therapy. I've done just enough reading on the subject to have some idea of what to expect, but also just enough to start scaring the heck out of myself. I have a wonderful man in my life who is determined to help me through everything thats coming. But it's nice to know there is a place I can go to "talk" about the stuff he won't understand.
Thanks, in advance, for the help and understanding.
