    In my case the first person I

    In my case the first person I saw was my surgeon. Then the oncologist after that. The surgeon told me how things would go. Insertion of port, chemo and radiation to shrink the tumour as much as possible after that and then surgery. Surgery is the first and best treatment for colon cancer. Anything else is secondary. Are you anemic from the blood loss? Did they suggest taking iron supplements or anything like that? Or will all this be addressed once you go see someone?

    The future

    CT scans can be very ambiguous.  If you are facing surgery, it would make sense to start doing some athletic training, keep a clean diet, and maybe put on a few pounds.  Reading through old posts could give you a bunch of tips on things to do.
