    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.
