I am new to the forum. I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in January 2017 at 37 years old. I had emergency surgery, 6 months of chemo and am NED. I have have on and off slight pains where my original pain started about 6 months after surgery, had ct all was well, pains started again in 6 more months, ct bloodwork all good again. Most recently pains started back (they are like a cramp-not horrible not there all the time, but there). I went to onc this Monday. He says scar tissue likely to blame, but this time I fell sick to my stomach, bloating, belching...bowels range from normal to water, dependent on the day. The onc said I should see a GI specialist which I see today and I have another CT tomorrow. Anyone have stomach aches that come and go? Is it my nerves? Is it because I have half my colon gone? I am so tired of worrying and I wonder the toll it takes on my life. I take meds to help with anxiety, been to therapy. I have tried to advocate for myself because I was so misguided before my diagnosis. Is all of this normal?
