I just had to respond to your post. I just cant believe how young you are. We are the same age. My mom was diagnosed with Colon/Rectal Cancer in March of 06. They had tried Radiation and Chemo to treat the tumor and try and shrink it before she would have surgery because when they did her Colonoscopy they didn't even have to test it to see if it was Malignant they just knew by the way it looked. She went through treatment for 4 months and prayed it would shrink to prevent the Ostomy. When they took her into surgery they realized that the tumor didnt shrink at all it had gotten bigger and when they tried to remove it, the thing broke apart in her and they had to move around alot to get it. Long story short she ended up with a PERMANENT Ostomy and they had to sew up her rectum. Her bladder was really bruised as well so she had a permanent catheter for 2 years because she had no feeling from the waist down. She had really intense chemo after surgery and she fought really hard. She is wonderful now and she is in remission. Her margines are clear and we pray that it will never come back. She has had the catheter removed and is finaly getting all her feeling back. If GOD FORBID it does return then that will be it...she cant have any more chemo or radiation..she is glowing green as it is. She had Breast cancer as well and had Radiation with that so she has had her limit. I will pray for you and yours. My mom is a 2 time survivor and now you are a SURVIVOR too!
