I'm surprised at this as well but they claim it will still reduse my chances of a reoccurance in my pelvis! Let me k...

Re: spread from colon to neck node?

I know this post is old but I'm curious as to what ended up happening? I just had my PET and two nodes in left neck lit up. Getting them surgically biopsied on Monday. I'm nervous they are a metasis, however no lung or liver involvement.
Thank you!

Re: Choosing not to do Adjuvent Radiation- Advice Appreciate

Yes, so sorry. Auto correct on phone- geez! Yes they found a new nodule at previous surgery site. Thus the reason for not being able to get a enema to work, the nodule was blocking it.
