My issue is this. Though I am still waiting for the biopsy report from the surgery but the ones from the two colonoscopies indicate that the cancer was caught early. People have made comments to me and to others that "It is not a big deal since it was caught really early" or " I had a pre-cancerous polyp and it was nothing" or "it sounds like it is pre-cancer and not really cancer" or worse "Why did your doctor remove so much of your colon for such a little thing?" People may be minimalizing this to try to offer me comfort but instead it makes me feel maybe I am overacting to what is happening. This IS a big deal to me! Am I exaggerating the seriousness of what I am going through?
