There are so many more things they can do to treat colorectal cancer these days. You can check old posts to see my history. It might make you feel a bit better. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help, but I know how frustrating it is when you post your concerns and nobody answers. God bless!
thanks so much, heidismom. we are still waiting and hope to hear something within the next couple days - this is agonizing. while we are hoping for the best, i know in my heart it is not going to be good - fungating and friable are not benign ways to describe a tumor, sadly. i just don't know which step to take next - i want my mom to be in perfect health and want to make sure we do everything right, you know? thanks again and i wish you the very best of health and all the love in the world.
