Colon cancer

Hi! My name is julia i was recently diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer and I came across this page and it is nice to know there are other people out there who get what I am going through. I just sort of wanted to know what to expect from chemo and stuff like that since I will be starting next week Monday for the first time. I'm nervous about everything but im rready to fight

  • Hey, I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer a few years ago. Each person can react differently to chemo, but for me the side effects were relatively minor. I was a little weaker and a little nauseous, sometimes loosing my apatite, but that was about it. I didn't loose my hair, and in general my condition improved. My pain decreased and I was able to gain weight. Stay strong, I know this is scary but you can do it. The best advice anyone gave me when I was diagnosed was you're stronger than you think you are. If you have anymore questions feel free to message me on here.
