I was a member of the uterine cancer forum four years ago when my mom was diagnosed with inoperable uterine cancer. She lost her battle after a year. I also lost my dad to colon cancer six years ago. Just a few days ago my husband had an abdominal ultrsound and CT scan which shows probaable rectal cancer as the primary with mets to the liver. I am in absolute shock. He is 59 and in excellent health otherwise. We go see the gastroenterologist on Tuesday, presumably for a sigmoidoscopy. I am a nurse which doesn't help. I am scared and depressed. Any words of hope and success would be appreciated. He is the love of my life and I don't want to lose him.
