Hi, I am due for my first chemotherapy on 15th Feb - i guess then it will become more 'real', although I have been through considerable torment with a stent proceedure in my Sigmoida few weeks ago, (1.5 hours on a trolley with only gas!) and still no firm biopsy report after several attempts including from liver (it has spread, not sure how much, I think just a little) The stent took a week at settle, NHS still recomend 'low residue' diet but I have more or less maintained my usual 'high residue' diet for fear of constipation, now my bowel action is best described as 'easy', but not 'unreliable' thank God.

I am going to start on the two regular drugs prescribed for colon cancers, one cell cycle specific and one not and I am told there is very good chance I will qualify for a clinical trial drug which is a 'targeted' therapy. So at this stage I have no idea what will happen or if I will ever be operated on, including one day 'loosing' the stent.
Happy to exchange furtehr information for anyone ion this predicament.
