Well, this thread confuses me. From the link previously posted:
Stage IIIC:The cancer of the colon, regardless of how deep it has grown, has spread to four or more lymph nodes, but not to other distant parts of the body (T4a, N2a, M0; T3 or T4a, N2b, M0; or T4b, N1 or N2, M0
From the American Cancer Society:
One of the following applies.
T4a, N2a, M0: The cancer has grown through the wall of the colon or rectum (including the visceral peritoneum) but has not reached nearby organs (T4a). It has spread to 4 to 6 nearby lymph nodes (N2a). It has not spread to distant sites.
T3-T4a, N2b, M0: The cancer has grown into the outermost layers of the colon or rectum (T3) or through the visceral peritoneum (T4a) but has not reached nearby organs. It has spread to 7 or more nearby lymph nodes (N2b). It has not spread to distant sites.
T4b, N1-N2, M0: The cancer has grown through the wall of the colon or rectum and is attached to or has grown into other nearby tissues or organs (T4b). It has spread to at least one nearby lymph node or into areas of fat near the lymph nodes (N1 or N2). It has not spread to distant sites
Something is awry with your staging. IF your pathology indeed did show N1c, then you cannot be a stage IIIC. I would get your onc to clarify this for you. As for radiation, I would get a second opinion on the 'no radiation'. While yes, radiation after reconnection can prove to be more difficult, the odds of a local recurrence (which btw are extremely difficult to handle....you do NOT want a recurrence in the pelvic area) are significantly increased without radiation. If it were me, I'd be wanting another opinion about the radiation. JMO.
