Just met my oncologist for the first time for my stage 3B colon cancer. I had the tumour removed earlier this month so she practically said I am without cancer but chemo was necessary as a preventative measure to kill any traces of remaining cancer and reduce the rate of recurrence drastically (6 months on FOLFOX via a port).
Has your oncologist said the same thing with your diagnostic? Seems like she's downplaying it a lot as in I'm cured but doing chemo just to be sure.
Is it just me? How about you, what is your story?
