Colorectal cancer stage 3c: Need positive feedback

in 2008 a "well-defined adenocarcinoma" was found just above the rectal junction. It was removed by laparascopic resection. Pathology found cancer in 7 of 11 lymph nodes, so chemotherapy (FOLFOX6) was started after a second opinion was received at Mayo Jacksonville. It continued over six months. I've been colon cancer free since then. Prostate cancer and squamous cell cancer have also been defeated.

I'm leaving you this link, which leads to the blog I wrote over the five-year period to full remission, so you can see the whole picture of one person's treatment history. The blog begins at the bottom of the first page, so read upward from there.

A good positive attitude really helps, which my wife and friends provided.
