Newly Diagnosis

Hello all, just saying hello to everyone so I can start the communication.
I was diagnosis with colon cancer a month a ago. Second week recovering from my surgery and just found out that I'm in stage 31A. In the process of looking for an oncologist with a second opinion plan. How many of you got a second opinion? I'm kinda lucky I guess because MD Anderson is 3 hours a way so I'm thinking I will get my second opinion there. I was looking at some of the post to decide if whether I should go thru chemo or not. I would like to go thru the Whole Food eating to prevent the cancer from coming back. Did anyone went this route instead of chemo or thought about it. I will be 45 in September so I have a long way to go so I would like to fight this cancer without chemo if I still have some time to make this Whole Food health work. What are your thoughts? I feel like I know you guys so well after reading all the threads. Thank you so much for sharing. It really help me at this stage of the cancer.
