My husband 49 years old had his colon and retum removed 4 months ago, has started chemo, so far very lucky not to many or bad side effects. The dr. says 3 to 5 yrs, I am in shock and have low days and high days, My husband is up beat, and says he will continue to live as he always has. This is so scary!

Wow that is scary.  I hope you are still on here.  I can't imagine what you are going through.  My husband was 50 diagnosed last March and had surgery, it was staged as T31NMO, Stage 3B I believe.  He had a temporary illeostomy and then reversal 5 months later.  He chose not to have chemo or radiation and knock wood his one year check up was really good. And his blood CEA continues to be perfect (knocking a lot of wood right now) without him having the treatments recommended I am also very scared.
