It's only been 8 months since my surgery to remove a tumor and resect my colon. (Right hemicolectomy). All margins were clear.
My surgeon wants me to have another colonoscopy next week. Isn't that a little soon after surgery? I thought a year later would be about right. (I finished with 7 infusions of folfox 2 months ago and last week had a CT scan that revealed no recurrence).
January 2019, pain in abdomen that I thought was muscular or nerve related persisted many months
November 2019, CT scan revealed large mass in colon
December 10, 2019, surgery, right hemicolectomy, 8cm t4b tumor removed, margins clear, 47 negative nodes removed, 1 positive node removed
February and March 2020, beginning week 8 after surgery have received 3 folfox infusions every 2 weeks
have been applying ice to hands and feet during infusions
