Seems that those in left side do better than right side.  I am right sided :(  But doctor told me my location was usually a good one in terms of position and prognois.

Rightie-Tightie; Leftie-Loosie

Mine was right side, at the transverse; tumor grew from one section, across the space and into the traverse section headed the other way.

I was staged as a CC four in 2006.

Studies are interesting but mean little in the total scope of things.

We prepare for the worst and hope for the best; Where we end up is anyone's guess.

Eat well, sleep well, and stay healthy.

Best of wishes,

Mine is both sides. I had a section of my sigmoid colon removed as well as a right hemicolectomy.  9 yrs out from a stage 4 dx, I'm fine.
