Claudia, im n Europe also and apparently there is a,world wide standard care of approach, I im awating surgery may 10th stage 3b( not sure yet about lymphs till removed) 6 were enlarged previous to radiochemo therpy and I will have a tep illio until adjuvant chemo is finished, I had 80%reduction in my tumor and my surgery is so low apparently ill nearly b able to feel the anastomosis from the outside,,, but here we follow uk and American proceedures, where anything in the lymps even if its,only suspected is given mop up!!!!
As,far as im aware Norway Finland and holland actually has the highest insidences in the world of colon cancer so maybe ur ahead of the rest if us in.ur after surgery treatment,,,,
Wishing u a speedy recovery yet again
