I first joined the colon club family in Spring of 2016 and although I do not post often, I do visit nearly every day, several times a day, to read the information and advice you all share. Thank you for sharing and for putting into words so many thoughts and feelings that I struggle to articulate or understand.
My latest CT scan indicated nodal metastases. It could be something but hoping it's nothing. I had the biopsy procedure last Thursday and am now restlessly wandering through the agonizing hours of waiting for the results (such a lonely place to be but I know I'm not alone). I’m anxious but oddly calm as well - not quite sure what to do or think. Preparing for the worst but definitely praying for the best.
Healing hugs to all.
