Had right hemicolectomy on 12/4 and had my follow up appointment today. Didn’t really learn too much. Confirmed what I had already derived for myself from the pathology report I reviewed. My cancer is officially stage 3b and I will need chemo because one of my lymph nodes they took out tested positive for cancer.
I assumed I would learn the plan today, but it turns out I have to get a referral to a “medical oncologist”. The doc I’ve been seeing up til now who did the surgery is a “surgical oncologist” so I guess this appointment was strictly surgical follow-up and his part is done.
They said they’d try to schedule an appointment for me ASAP but I don’t really have a time frame yet so it’s back to hurry up and wait mode for now.
I sure will be glad to eventually get this all behind me… it is already physically and mentally exhausting. Honestly I’d like nothing more than right now to curl up in a nice long nightgown and take a nap!
Hi Erica, I know first hand what a battle this is, and I truly wish you well. As many have said we are here for you, praying, and willing you on, with as much support and love as we can send. Good luck sweetie. Much love Amanda xx
You hangin there, I had cancer in 2011, treated in 2012. I had a great oncologist that worked magic. I was stag 3b as well with two lump glands involved. I had squacell cardamoms of the tounge. I had radiation and chemo. Please let me now how I may help. Hugs Nancy
