My first visit with an oncologist. Good news.

Yesterday I had my first and hopefully last visit with an oncologist. The doctor said that the tumor had not gone through the intestinal wall (that's good), the lymph nodes were clear of cancer (that's good) and the two other polyps that were found were small and clear of cancer ( three for three). The tumor is being sent off for genetic screening and we will know the results in two weeks. I will need annual colonoscopies and CT scans for 3-5 years even if the genetic screening is normal.

The people in this group gave me wonderful advice for questions, love and support. I can't thank everyone enough!

A week ago I had a mass removed from my colon.

It's going to be another week+ for my first oncologist visit.
This is when I find out what stage I'm at (hopefully stage 2) and the recommended treatment.

I know I don't know enough to ask important questions, so I am hoping a few folks here can offer up suggestions.
Anything at all would be helpful. Thanks.
