I had chemo and radiation before surgery for my colorectal cancer - stage 2. The tumor shrunk a lot. There were no lymphy nodes affected. I am now having post surgery chemo treatments. Am supposed to have 12 and they are taking a toll on me. I can only have 2 treatments a month as that is what my insurance allows. I am wondering if anyone quit these treatments half way through..supposed to have 12. And if they did what was the outcome? I have had 5 so far - they are giving me an extra week off this month to see if I feel better. I still have a lot of rectal problems, lots of throbbing. I have been swimming daily and then get in a hot tub which helps.
