Around 2pm I call again. “Please have someone call me with the results from my pathology report.” Pretty sure I sound desperate. But hey, if desperate gets me a call back, then I'm all for it!
The cancer did move outside of the colon and was found in two of the fifteen surrounding lymph nodes. He said we’d discuss this in detail at our appointment on Thursday which is good because my mind was going into shut down mode. I had read enough about cancer to know spreading to the lymph nodes is a very bad thing, even if it is only two lymph nodes. I liken cancer cells to cockroaches, where there are two there are two thousand.
Cancer is now on the move in my body. Tick-tock.
