Do you know what's stage? That would make a difference. Also whether it was in the lymph nodes or not. If your worried get a second opinion. They are only doctors not gods and if they make a mistake we pay with our lives.
No dont know what stage it was, just told there was 3 lymph nodes that it was showing in but as I also have Myeloma the onco didnt think I could take the chemo, didnt seem all that worried, just keeping a 6 monthly check on it. Thanks for your response
Thanks for your response, the bowel cancer was removed successfully but wanted to get rid of a couple of lymph nodes that may spread at some stage, I also have Myeloma and the onco didnt think I could take it, didnt seem to worried just have to be checked every 6 months now! I have refused chemo for Myeloma so wasnt prepared to do it anyway! Unless absolutely necessary!
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
