I just had surgery on 1/29 to remove a section of my colon, some spots on my liver and 32 lymph nods. The Dr. cut a good section out of the colon and reattached it, he removed two spots on the liver, one was cancer the other was fatty liver..out of the 32 lymph nods 3 had cancer. When I went to the oncologist this past monday she said I had stage 4 cancer because it had moved to my liver. Yesterday Fri. 2/15 I had a Pet and C Scan done but I do not know the results of it and wont know till next week, Monday is a holiday uggghhh. The oncologist recommended 32 weeks of chemo using FoxFor starting on 2/28..they want to put in a Porta Cath in next week...I am starting to freak out about the whole thing now and I am very scared/afraid...or ascared....I been reading that stage 4 cancer in the colon...may give you only a few years of life!! That is freaking me out..I just turned 49 last week...cancer was my birthday present! I am reading stuff and it is scaring the crap out of me...What am i facing? Is this at any way curable ? Is it almost always a death sentance? Do I have any chance of beating this? I'm so scared
Somebody please give me some help
