Re: My Dad has stage 3 bowel cancer
Just checked the boards and have seen this post...so sorry no one has replied before. Stage 3 is serious but it also very treatable. My husband had stage 3C nearly nine years ago with 11 out of 18 lymph nodes involved. He had chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He did not have the more sophisticated chemotherapy that is available today and yet he is alive and well! He does now have prostate cancer but that is presently under control. I hope your dad does well. Please post back and let us know how things are.
Husband dx July 2003, advanced rectal cancer stage 111C; myself dx July 2006 indolent lymphoma; husband dx February 2010, stage 2 prostate cancer.
