Hi all,
I am new to this discussion group. I am a almost 2 year survivor of stage 4 colon cancer. I had surgery, chemo and radiation. I just had a colostomy reversal in Jan, after 18 mos, with the bag. I had a pet scan in April, and am in remission. I enjoy reading the stories, and am glad to participate. God bless us all.

I bet it was great to get the colostomy reversed! I'm currently doing a little radiation, but I'm involved in Nutrition now. So...tell us what you are doing to stay in remission.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I don't do anything special to stay in remission. But when I had my surgery almost 2years ago, things didn't look very promising for me. But I refused to let cancer take my life. I was only 48 years old, have a wonderful husband. Two grown children, and two beautiful grandchildren. I put up the hardest fight of my life. I endured continuous chemo with 5Fu., leukovorin, and oxilaplatin. While on chemo I had 36 sessions of radiation. I thank God for every day of my life. I belive that I am truly blessed, and he must want me here for a reason, even if its to inspire other cancer patients, not to ever give up. Keep your faith, and prayers really are answered. Good Luck to all.
