Was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in May of 2015, had a color resection with no post op problems.did a 6 month regime of chemo. Pet scan in october was free of cancer. In Jan of 2015 ,I completed my chemo. In June of 2016 developed pain in abdomen, new pet scanned showed 3 hot spots, 1 lymph node in groin, mass on the outside of my colon wall, and a area around my belly button. Restarted chem in August of 2016, just had a fresh pet scan done 1 week ago it shows no decrease in size of the cancer but it shows a new lump ode that is involved .
I do not understand why a reoccurring cancer is happening, I’m not handling this well and the stress on my wire and family is sky rocketing
. My doctor idem so vert capable but is lacking in communication. Feel the time is right for a second opinion.why does it seem the colon cancer reoccurs so much.
