Yeah, my colorectal surgeon told me exactly the same thing. Then went into the we can manage it as a chronic disease routine. I know we have covered the chronic disease thing before but we all have differing opinions. Rob in PA is "comfortable" with chronic, where I have not yet reached the point where I am happy with that label....guess I am still too much of a freshie
Me, I'd rather have the Lance Armstrong Stage IV testicular cancer, than mCRC (guess that is not an option with the ladies)
OK, another one. I was outside the oncology suite that I get my folfox infusions and they had a massive notice board with cancer support groups. Everything from Breast cancer, to metastatic breast cancer, kidney cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer but there was nothing, not a single thing about CRC. Advertising sponsered by the federal government here covers skin cancer & lung cancer on national tv but nothing on crc
Why do people not want to talk about it?
