Just found this board and found it fasinating.
I was dx with stage 2 coloncancer in 2010. Since that awful day,I have been though the mill.
I had chemo 24 hrs. a day for 6 weeks, along with radiation at the same time.
Had to shrink a tumor in order to do surgery.
At first every thing seemed to go ok, but then, I got blood poisioning through my port. We solved that problem with a great infectious disease Dr.
Then, a terrible abcess developed on my colon, took it a year to heal.
I was still in terrible pain when they discovered I had radiation burn so bad I could not function.
To cure that, I have had 30 hypberiac oxygen treatments, with 30 more to go.
Still bleeding from colon everyday. I have a colostomy pouch, was supposed to be temporary, but now I don't know.
Just wondering if anyone else has had these problems, and what was the out come?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for sharing your stories.
