It would also appear as though the tumor is a little father up than initially suggested by my colonoscopy. So, it may become classified as sigmoid. I will meet Dr. Matthew Kalady of the Cleveland Clinic on Monday, my surgeon, and he will make the call on how he would prefer treatment to take place, whether chemo/rad then surgery etc. Or surgery then follow up chemo. I will update occasionally as I go along, just to give any new diagnosed persons a general timeline of how things play out, in my case anyway.
I still keep you all in my thoughts and prayers every night!
That's good news if it is higher than expected. Even though the CT only picks up a single node they will want to remove more so the are assured that they have the clean margins.
Keep us up dated on your treatment plan.
