I was diagnosed with Stage 3c Colorectal Cancer in August 2011. Had surgery to remove about 12" of sigmoid colon and cancer in 5 lymph nodes. I completed six months of Folfox chemo a year ago. So far any follow up tests have shown no sign of any cancer. I am so thankful for that. I have a CT Scan next week. It has been six months since my last one. I try not to be scared but I hear of so many where the cancer comes back. Nobody around me truely understands my fears. They think I'm being negative and tell me I'm going to be fine. I want to be positive but not enough time has gone by. How do I keep from worrying so much?
