My mom was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. The cancer is in her upper colon, and the cells have so far grown into her uterus. She told me there is some sort of an 'apple core' lesion, but I'm not quite sure what that means. She started chemo on August 31st. She has a really great doctor, and they're attacking it the best they can. They plan to do chemo and radiation and then eventually to perform a hysterectomy. My friends told me that colon cancer is one of the easiest to treat. I keep asking my mom, do you think we'll make it through this? She says she doesn't know, that she can't guarantee me anything, and that we'll just take it as it comes. I basically came here to get second opinions because I'm so scared I'm going to lose her. Please give me some sort of an idea..?View Thread
