Justakid Posted November 30, 2004 Share Posted November 30, 2004 My friend, who dx with colon cancer 1 1/2 yrs ago had surgery today. He had gone in for a follow up CAT Scan and Doc Appt. They found something. When they opened him up today, there were tumors. They removed them and he'll be in the hospital for another 10 days. They removed another foot of his intestines. The think that has me upset is that he had 8mths of chemo (strong chemo), stronger then normal.....he had an older doctor that retired during his treatment, his new Doc was surprised by the aboumt of chemo he was receiving BUT continued because he was tolerating it so well. Guess I'm feeling down, everytime I turn around someone's cancer has returned or spread. Trying to stay positive about myself but all around me, bad things are happening to everyone (cancer wise that is). I'm calling tomorrow to get my MRI and PET Scan results. I don't mind saying that I am terrified! I need a break from all this cancer mess but I guess you can never escape yourself. Thanks for listening, gonna go say a little prayer for Mike (my friend) and ME. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
