Still new to this site.I am very pleased to be able to relate feelings,depression and fears with
all who are going through this. I was dx.with locally advanced stage4 mucinous adenocarcinmoa in Aug.2003.8/20 lymph nodes,multiple metasitic tumors. Came out of the cecum and connected to the sigmoid colon through a fistula. The pathology report clearly stated infiltrating metastaic mucionous carcinoma. I have read that this type of cancer is very aggresive and hard to treat. I had radiation and chemo.My chemo was Cpt11,5Fu and lecovorin. I finished my chemo in June 2004.They were giving me procrit shots. I now have red blood cell aplasia where my bone marrow is not making red blood cells.Another battle. In Oct.2004 I had pressure on my right lower rectum. I told my oncologist, where I was sent for a petscan which was negative. The pressure has subsided however I now have right pelvis pain which extends to the back on movement.
I just had an Mri of the pelvis with contrast on friday and am awaiting results. My oncologist thinks this is musculular/skeletel related. My gut
feeling is it is not. You know yor own body and feelings. I clearly feel there is something very wrong.Since the tumor started on that side and part was left on the right uterer tube and radiated I feel it has come back. Has anybody out there had mucinous adenocarcinoma and know of the
fast aggression of this type of cancer?
