Hi sally,
I had st3 cc with 6 nodes involved. I had major surgery ie. cut from sternum to below navel. They removed some transverse and descending colon. I was in hospital for ten days and was well enough to have chemo at three weeks. I went back to work at five weeks and worked right thru chemo. I have been ca free for over eleven years. Good luck and a speedy recovery .Ron.
Hi Sally
I had my whole sigmoid colon section removed because I had two seperate tumors, I also had my gall bladder out at the same time so my incision went from breast bone to pelvic bone.
I had stage 3 colon cancer, two lymph nodes involved.
I went through 6 months of Folfox.
I did continue working full time through out chemo.
I will be a four year survivor come August.
Good luck
Well you need to be careful for about a month's time. But please whatever you do, make sure you follow a healthy diet from now on. Eating properly will reduce your recovery time and make sure you do not have any more health issues. Consult your doctor for the best diet for your condition.
