What a completely different life we have compared to one year ago. We're doing great! Thanks for asking!
chemo sabe wrote:NHMike - I seem to be missing something. I think you have forgotten to tell us WHY you have not started treatment?? June was like 9 months ago. No miracle is going to occur - you need to start treatment. I was diagnosed in October, started radiation/chemo in November, my operation to resection my colon was in Feb and I started adjuvant chemo a month later. I think you have foolishly wasted time. A cancer tumor sheds THOUSANDS of cells each day. In the case of rectal cancer, body circulation puts many of those cells into your lungs. Days, weeks and months have gone by and your tumor continues to grow and can penetrate thru and really, really, really, screw you up even more. Stop fooling around and start the chemo / radiation. find a surgeon and get the operation scheduled.
