    Celebration (Finished treatment): after my second battle which was a year long battle, I finally finished my treatment, and go back in Dec. to see my colon Dr. to have him determine what steps to take next. Am excited but also apprrehensive.

    Decision Point (whether or not to even bother with the second round of treatment): once my fear was confirmed that the cancer was back, I had to determine if I wanted to go through all the side effects and isolation of having the surgery. It was very difficult because I remembered how difficult my last treatment was, and what it put my family through and I wasn't sure it would be worth it. Only after long heart to heart talks with my wife did I finally agree to the procedure, and I am still in the guessing stage of if I made the right choice or not.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Once on the chemo, I would have severe stomach pains, to the point of making me double over, the itching was unbearable both on my legs and back and feet, my loss of appetite was good because it helped me loose some weight, but I was always tired and groggy
