january 17th, during a routine colonoscopy, I found out the symptoms that I had were not my gallbladder but a 3cm mass in my transverse colon.

I’m a week out from colon resection surgery and getting stronger everyday.  

The pathology came back as T3N0m0, so mostly all good news.

 

i read thru a lot of your posts during thesr long scary nights and I just wanted to thank everybody.  Some of you are going thru hell and you still take time out to encourage others, I wish I could give you all a hug

hugs

You can do it! It sound hard for now but in your case there is definitely the light at the end of tunnel. I don t mean dying and seeing the light :) Butt.

So glad that you had that done and that the surgery went well.  Thanks for posting your scary event.  It's hard when they tell you there is something they have to remove and the surgery went well.  I'm not sure with all those numbers you gave, but if they've given a good report then I'm so happy for you.

Thanks for the big virtual hug.  Hugs back!  Kim,

Happy for you that everything went so well. Your doctor may want you to do adjuvant chemo to mop up any stray cells that might be floating around. At stage 2 it’s usually left up to you. I was stage 2 also but did 3 months of xeloda which is the pill form of 5fu. Good luck in whatever you choose to do. The people here are the best and we will all help to give support.

It's aways nice to hear about someone who's doing well after treatment. I hope you continue to do well and the surgery becomes just a distant memory. Smile

It is likely the oncologist will discuss chemo with you. Whether it is recommended or not may well depend on the philosophy of the doctor.  It may benefit you to know about the possible chemo regimes and to have a list of questions to ask the doctor.  In particular, you might want to ask about how much of an advantage chemo would give you and the full range of possible side effects.  If the doctor recommends no chemo, all the better.  Many of us have found that you have to be your own advocate in the health care system.  Best of luck to you.
