My tests are at the end of this month/ beginning of April. UGH

T4, means an intrusion beyond the colon, not stage 4 . Dianna

Their signature says
Dx Stage IIIc/IV CC 2/09
Rectal staging is greek to me but this appears to be saying either/ or III or IV.

All you people that are just diagnosed I am proof you can come out the other side of this thing and I assure you NOBODY thought I would be seeing 2017 when I was diagnosed in 2009. Take it from me, being stopped in the halls of the hospital by strange doctors and being told they had heard about you is more than a little disconcerting, but I am still here and not looking at leaving anytime soon. Baylor Scott & White’s bona fide medical miracle right here, not the type of recognition I ever looked for but what can you do.

Jay you still around down there in New Zealand? Hope everything is well with you.

Take care all
