I had an Anterior Resection on the 18th April. Results were T2N0M0. Colorectal nurse said stage 1 and no vascular invasion. I was told that I don't need chemo. I was relieved by these results. I know so many of you have been and are going through so much more and feel guilty about asking questions.
So many of you supported me throughout diagnosis up to my operation.
I have been getting on with things and dealing well and trying to just get on with life. I had a meeting with my surgeon today who was great at the time but I'm left feeling really strange. He is blunt and not great at explaining things.
He went over histology again then started talking about margins and a donut. He said the margin was clear but 2mm then said no it was 8mm and then said about a donut and they were clear. I went into panick mode. The nurse specialist wasn't there as back up today. The MDT after my results decided on an MRI so that has been booked today. I'm so anxious about it.
I don't want to Google things but any info especially about what a donut is would be greatly appreciated.
