Today Chris had his last chemo session, 8 in total. He didnt want to ring the bell as he’s been there, done that, bought the t shirt previously and there was recurrence. He now feels reluctant to celebrate. The oncologist is pleased with how treatment has gone though. So now we wait to see the consultant to discuss what’s next. Surgery is highly likely now to remove the rectal tumour but not sure about the groin nodes. These were not visible on latest scans but we still feel they may reappear down the line.
Does anyone know how long after chemo ends surgery can go ahead? Chris needs some dental treatment but was advised by Christie nurses today to leave it for at least 6 weeks from a raised chance of infection and bleeding. Would this be the same from a surgery perspective?
Sorry if I’ve rambled a bit, it’s been a long day
