GoodMorning to all. My mom was diagnosed with colon cancer at the end of January and they removed a large part of her large intestine and some of her small intestine that was attached. They found 33 lymph nodes non cancer. She had a blockage as well. She is 62 years old health otherwise. Well she does have anemia too. She is the type of person that doesn't stay still very independent. So this has been very hard for her and Sometime my sister and I think she has not accepted it yet. She was vomitting after surgery at least once a day very green and her surgeon gave her a nausau med that has helped. Yesterday we saw her oncologist for the first time and he was talking about doing chemo for 6 months. He said shes a stage II with grade 1 growth. I heard him tell the surgeon T4. Don't know what that means?? He was not to happy with her recovery so have to wait two more weeks to see what to do. He says we will not know if there is anymore cancer anywhere so to prevent it or slow it down he want to do chemo. Is this true?? How could they not know. Are there no test that could be done? And if the surgeon said he saw nothing else in there should we do chemo?? Please need advice, any info will be appreciate. She is to busy thinking about others than wanting to deal with herself. Thank you to all for your time and sorry so long.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse.
