I foooled all the "experts" or should I say my cancer fooled the experts.
Had a colonoscopy in early December - 1 polyp. Results came back as benign. Surgeon decided because of my age 60 to do a sig reesction. Came through surgery with flying colours - Surgeon convinced that everything was great- even told me that the polyp had started to shrink!! Biopsy came back as 2 lymph nodes involved "stage III"......Surgeon was shocked!!!! Not as shocked as me I've completed 28 rounds of radiation/5FU and so far 5 rounds of Oxal/5fu/lev.
I think I am very, very lucky - because if the surgeon had decided not to operate - I could very well have been heading to a stage IV.
Chemo is not "pleasant" - but what the heck it is only a bump in the road!!
