Oncologist has cut me loose. No more CT scans...she did not say "cured" but she did say
that the chance of a recurrence was not great for colonrectal.
Sadly, I am not "out of the woods"...I was diagnosed with CLL (chronic lymph leukemia),
and MDS (anemia)..MDS probably caused by my prior radiation/chemo for colonrectal.
My kidneys are damaged....probably caused by prior radiation/chemo for colonrectal.
I was left with a wicked case of neuropathy in my feet and legs...caused by prior radiation/chemo for colonrectal.
This sounds very depressing...BUT I am still enjoying life!! I go to Florida for 6 months every winter, I have 3 wonderful
little Grandkids, I have a wonderful caring family and husband.
LIFE IS GOOD
I am so thankful for the care and treatment I received, and especially for my Colonrectal oncologist. She said "it is between you and\
the cancer and I am betting on you". Even with all the post chemo medical problems...I have no regrets...I believe that FOLFOX/RADIATION
saved my life
