Feeling a bit worried and anxious
Hello. This is my first post and I was just wondering if anyone was in the same position who could offer some advice.
I am 39 and have just had a recent diagnosis of stage 4 colorectal cancer T4b N1 M0 with extension in to surrounding structures and muscles but not to any organs. I have completed 6 weeks of chemo-radiotherapy and currently awaiting repeat staging scans to be told how much IV chemotherapy I will need (am on the total neoadjuvant therapy pathway) prior to surgery at a later date (all they will tel me is it will entail a permanent stoma ☹️)
The chemo radiotherapy was rough, especially towards the end and I am still recuperating from a stage 3 radiotherapy skin reaction as well as other side effects.
Has anyone else done this treatment?? Waiting for the next stage is really difficult and trying not to worry.
