Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

Well, the PET scan came back good. The oncologist told me to cancel appointment with him and to go to radiation I'll know more Wednesday. But sounds like I'll have radiation to shrink tumor then surgery. No chemo? Has anyone done this treatment?

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

It is in the rectum. I was told that I would not need a bag because of the location. Thank you so much for all the information, I've been reading as I can. It's so much to take in. It's so hard. But reading the post here has really helped. Oncologist on Tuesday. PET on Thursday

Thanks
