Colorectal cancer stage 3c: Need positive feedback

Hello there! Thank you for sharing your story. I have been wondering how many chemo treatments other Dr. Have been recommending. So far i have done 5 and my Dr. had recommended 8. Not sure I can handle that many, so it helps to know that your Dr. said 4 chemo. Sessions.
My Ayurvedic Dr. recommended that i follow the traditional medicine route but gave me the advice to "be strong". I took that to mean to be determined and brave. But for me it also means that i sometimes get to say that it is hard, when it's hard, that it is scarey when i'm scared. It's got to be ok to be honest with yourself and your people and your pets and keep on taking care of your needs and asking for help where it is needed.
Because of the location of the constriction in my colon- just proximal to the rectum, i had 31 radiation sessions. Be strong and cry when its helpful! Karen

Never heard of 31 radiation sessions. My doctor said radiation does a lot of damage to healthy tissue. I had 2, and that is his limit. Are you working with a oncology surgeon or regular doc?
