Last year I was told I have stage 1 colon cancer, found out on a routine colonoscopy.....surgery told me I had stage 3. When I ask my oncoligist about my lymphnodes (when they did my reconstrution surgery the sample of lymph nodes they took one came back positive.) Does this always spread?? How do you know the chemo "killed" it all. I am done with my 12 /3 day chemo, waiting a scan in Sept.2015 had another colonoscopy all clear. I am a heathly 50 year old female with no medical history so I had genetic testing....came back low rick...lol Has anyone had or heard of a test that would show positive or negitive cells in the lymphnodes due to colon cancer? Is anyone having more test after the chemo is done or are we all on a wait and see?? My drugs were Folfox.... and yes I have neuropathy in both my hands and feet. Yes I see my oncologist every 90 days
