Viscous circle, I just hate not having control over this situation,.
My youngest son has cystic fibrosis, so I'm used to treatments, watching trials and reserching Intergrative meds etc!!!!!
So it's like second nature
I rang the Irish cancer Society to ask if its standard procedure and they said only in matasasis, ( makes no sence whatsoever)
But my oncology nurse said all are tested, weather it has Matastasised or not,,,,
What's the point in giving someone one type chemo that's not going to benefit them and wait until it's got worse to check????
Now Because I also have a second polyp, 15cm away from the first, I'm thinking maybe it's Lynch because other's on here don't seem to have any other polyps only the one cancerous one
Sorry for all the question,,,
I'm probably driving u mad

I won't actually know until about 6/10 weeks after radiation finishes,,,
That will b a long night before meeting the surgeon,,,
Probably do a DRE, and he should pretty much know from that, with the MRI to confirm,
But still depends on the actual day of surgery, as I'm also aware it's a difficult one to perform ( he's said that already)
But I'm sill hopfull, it will all go to my plan lol
And not the person holding my voodoo doll

Prep is easy, for me on this theres none
Ware my own clothes, pull them down below the tattoos and lie there,,,
Again must be different machines
I asked about the back and they said the machine will move around so it will do all 4 spots,
My first nurse said bladder full for exactly why u stated
And second said empty, for simulation so empty for treatment????? ( weird)
In fact I've some kind da UTI AGAIN ATM, possibly a gyney issue that I may need seeing to before radiation gets worse
I'll be menopausal after it so going to ask to have my reproductive organs removed also
Just wasn't sure, if they can do it all together ( trauma to the body) or if u need a separate gyney ( prob)
