March 25th I found out I have colon cancer - had resection surgery April 24th. I am only 37 years old and have never had any cancer prior. Cancer is very prevelant in my family and my great grandmother had colon cancer. My oncologist is recommending chemo but also stated I should get a second opinion to ease my mind that I've got all information from more than 1 person. When I had surgery my margins were clear and they took 26 lymph nodes and all were clear. My second opinion stated he would just watch it.
I was completely on board with chemo because I want to do everything I can to make sure it doesn't come back. Bt now I have a small portion of me wondering if i shouldnt since my 2nd opinion that thinks maybe I shouldn't. I don't want to live with the what if's or regret that I didn't feel I did enough, especially if it returns! Every DR pretty much states its my decision. I wish they would just say - this is what your going to do.
anyone with stage 2 have chemo and if so did it come back or vice versa - have you chosen no chemo and it came back?
please help me!
