My mother had anemia symptoms for most of 2018 although it was only diagnosed in December. It wasn't too severe and she was/is pretty healthy and active. They did a colonoscopy and found a few polyps that were removed, including one that was bleeding. They also found a flat lesion that the doctor thought looked suspicious. She had a CT scan and just got the pathology back today with a surgery scheduled in 2 weeks. We're in Canada and she's in a relatively small town, so health care isn't always as quick as you'd like it to be.
From the sounds of it, the CT scan was clear. The doctor told my mom that she couldn't really stage her until after the surgery, but I would take that to mean they didn't see signs of metastases. Her grandmother and one of her aunts both had colon cancer in their 80s and passed away from it. My mother doesn't have a copy of pathology or any information on the size of the lesion.
I just wanted to check in here and see if there was any advice for the surgery or any reassuring words. I myself am 2 years NED after a testicular cancer and know how easy it is to fear the worse, despite nothing indicating things are that bad.
To all of you fighting this disease, you're in my prayers.
