Next week short course radiation begins on Thursday. It is ending the following Wednesday and then surgery is Thursday the 30th. We have 1 more meeting with the colorectal surgeon before the surgery. Any suggestions on what to ask him is appreciated. Surgery is at Mayo Clinic and the surgeon already knows he will get clear margins, and he said the pathology will be done immediately.
It sounds like he may not need mop up chemo since he already got 8 cycles but I think it would be beneficial?
For all you NED people... how long does it take to get feeling back to normal after the tumor is removed? As in, eating doesn't hurt the stomach or make you run to the bathroom immediately anymore? Higher energy, Appetite comes back etc...
