ABOUT ME

Found blood on loo paper December 2020, scope in January 2021 found sessile polyp in sigmoid colon, referred to surgeon for endoscopic removal March 2021. Removed with decent margins but found 15% cancerous cells within polyp. Offered watch and wait or high anterior resection surgery. Had surgery July 6, 2021, did not need colostomy, recovery went well, 3 nights in hospital. Pathology from surgery took a while, then told 3/13 lymph nodes showed cancer. Offered 4 cycles of CAPOX. Started chemo 15 September 2021. Nausea and fatigue with both cycles so far, but just the right side of bearable.
