      According to NBCI research, preoperative chemotherapy doesn't change the long term survival rat
      or reduce rates of metastasis. Post operative is a difficult story.

      I’m a 7-year cancer-free Stage III colon cancer survivor, living a completely wonderful life with my amazing family and friends. I would not hesitate to go thru chemo again, if need be.

      I had 12 rounds of 5FU via pump over 46-hours for 6 months. I do have some problems due to the chemo, but everyone’s bodies react differently and while one person might encounter a particular side effect, another person might not. But again, I would do it all over again without hesitation.

      Had I not had chemo, I wouldn’t have lived to have celebrated my 50th birthday, wouldn’t have seen my kids graduate high school or college. Today, I am working a wonderful job, traveling the world with my husband, savoring the success of our adult children, and being grateful every day I open my eyes.

      Given adjuvant therapies have their role in caner treatment, surgery is the key factor determining survivals rates. I spent an hour reviewing this article by NCBI (The Best) and now feel
      much better equipped to discuss options with the surgical oncologist I'm currently working with.
      For the first time in my life, the old adage "Get a second opinion" is hitting home!
