Can anyone explain Adenocarcinoma AC? Does adenocarcinoma always require the surgery for the clostomy bag? My brother had about 6 weeks of combined chemo/rad Monday thru Friday. That ended, he gets a few months of a break, then he has surgery for the clostomy bag in July. Then, it's more chemo for 2 days a week for 8 more weeks. Where does Adenocarcinoma come from, what is the bag necessary. My brother pastes a smile on his face and sort of pretends things are normal, although I know all of this breaks his heart. My own Squamous Cell AC treatment seems what most of us had, chemo 1st week and week 4, radiation straight thru for 6 weeks. I'm trying to move closer to my brother, but I'm kind of afraid to use his cancer team for my squamous cell ac checkups.
