Stage 3 bowel cancer
My mother has stage 3 bowel cancer. She has had surgery to remove the tumour. Cancer was positive in the lymph nodes they removed also. She is currently on cycle 4 out of 6 total of chemotherapy.
We were told before chemo started that once it was finished they would scan her again before ending the treatment fully and then she would go back into the system for 6 monthly scans for the next 2 years.
The consultant is now saying that this won’t happen. They will finish the last round of chemo and then no scans or anything until another 6 months? Does this sound normal? I’m worried as they keep saying her bloods are good but they have always been good even when she had the tumour and they were doing various tests nothing showed up to say that she was sick.
Any advice would be appreciated. I’m so worried now as is she and nobody seems to want to answer any questions she has.
