My mother is 81 years old, so they elected the wait and watch approach. Since the one lymph node they saw it in was removed, they say there is a good chance that she may be cancer free. Her scan two weeks ago was clear and her CEA is normal. Even if there is some lingering cancer somewhere, colon cancer is one of the slowest growing cancers there is, so her being 81 years old, she would possibly die of something before the cancer got the best of her. If sh were younger, they would of, for precaution wise, would of recommended folfox for three months.
Do let me know what you path report says, and don't be discouraged if it shows cancer. My husband is also a cancer survivor. He was DX at age 52 with colon cancer 8 years ago. He did have to do chemo for 6 months, but has been cancer free since.
Hang in there,
