    Decision Point

    Why Chemo at Stage II, because my prognosis was T3N0 if it had been T2 just CT every year, we were so shocked that I would have to undergo adjuvant therapy, but I have had Chron's Disease for 25 years and the oncologist told me the best thing to do would be to sterilize my blood.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    12 rounds of Oxcillipatin 2-Fridays each month of infusion, and 3000 mg of Xeloda for 14 days of a 21 day cycle, it was XXX for 6 months...I am done with Chemo as of 10/14/11 the periperal neuropthy is still with me, but I hope to improve, just started Rehab for 12 weeks to wake my body back up, it had been quite a 2011, 2 abdominal surgeries a polyp scare in November in my bladder which was removed, and a re-check on my right breast...my pet scan of 11/29 was clear so I am hopefull that my colon cancer will not return.
