      I had the 2 rumors removed then a year of chemo with interferon. Right now I'm trying to get over the effects of the chemo. I'm so tired, I'm almost like a zombie. I have ins and some problems with the adrenal glands and thyroid. This fatigue is the worst. I'm just not functioning.

      I thought I had bad hemorroids, and instead it was cancer. the Dr originally thought it was adenocarcinoma, but it came back from Pathology as Mucosal Melanoma of the Rectum. Its extremely rare, and very aggressive. Thy have re-sected the tumor, but aren't ure how to treat me yet. They are waiting for it to return, then they can put me in a Clinical Trial! Anyboby else with this?

      I have had so many scans and biopsies but they really don't know what to do with me yet. I think they are waiting to see what happens to me too.
