    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    When Bruce went to get the colon resection to remove the polyp we thought about cancer as a possibility but really was not accepting that as an option. So when the doctor told me after the surgery I was just blindsighted .

    At first they thought was in the lymph nodes but later said it was outside the colon. But the good part is the PET scan did not show anymore cancer.
