Stage 4

Yes

Fluorouracil (5-FU)

How it hurts soooo many people!

I live to the fullest everyday.

Pray for everyone's pain and suffering.

animic--I also have lupus and this was found on a routine blood test. I had no other symtoms. Had I got a colonoscopy one year earlier at age 50, I probably would not have got cancer. Please have a colonoscopy at least by age 50! Earlier if there is a family history or if you have symtoms.

28 days after second surgery. Felt ok until the last week in which I was very tired.
