Same thing: colon cancer. Mine is in sigmoid colon. 6.7 x 5 cm when diagnosed in the ER--I'd been told it was diverticulitis. Had night sweats and fevers before diagnosis. Got a diverting colostomy. Not too bad.
Surgeon decided on neoadjuvant FOLFOX because of the size. I've seen my CEA go from 107, before chemo, to 9 (nine!) after round 5. Haven't had sweats or fevers since round 1.
Not much nausea or side effects; no pain at all. I've only had to take one Zofran. Clinical stage is IIa, but surgery in late August, after 8 rounds.
My husband is NED for over 5 years. I'm hoping for the best.
Hoping and praying for all of us here.
