hi guys, i posted just last week about my dad who has stage 3 colon cancer. He was operated on July 30th in which they removed 2 feet of his right colon along with 35 lymph nodes, 5 of which were positive. He just had his first CT scan last week and thank our God he is NED. Monday he will have his port put in and Tuesday treatments will start.
I am having an extremely hard time dealing with all of this. I love my dad dearly and I just can't imagine anything happenening to him. I am just soooooo tired of worrying all the time. I can't stop thinking about the cancer maybe coming back. I guess it doesn't help that I work in a Pathology Department either, b/c all I see just about every day is cancer cancer cancer and it's really starting to depress me. Will I ever have any peace of mind again????
