I think post-op chemo is pretty standard for stage III, although my Croatian oncologist said it’s not standard in Europe - not sure if that’s true.
Had my oncologist appointment today. They're all suggesting no chemo based on the response i had and presumed lynch status. Even if I wasn't lynch they still wouldn't recommend chemo. She said Europe and America have different opinions on chemo after a complete response, America saying "until you can prove it doesn't work we will give it regardless."
I'm obviously opting for no more chemo if the odds are already at 90-95 % chance of beating this dread disease. She was fairly optimistic.
