    Re: Cancer surgery--possible colostomy?

    My wife had endometrial cancer a few years back, so what I'm saying is based on that, and not any real knowledge...

    We also had a Cancer insurance that came in very handy.

    They pull lymph nodes when they do a cancer surgery because that way they can tell if the cancer has traveled. The lymph node is a "marker". I would actually suspect they removed multiple lymph nodes. So if they remove 10 and all 10 show signs of cancer that is worse than if they pull 10 and 1 does.

    Good luck with everything Butler.

    To be specific they pulled out 16 nodes and 2 of them were cancerous

    Lymph node wise, that's not bad. But I think that's why you are getting the second round of chemo.

    Let me try to briefly explain why having cancer in a lymph node does not necessarily mean you have lymphoma. Lymph nodes act as filters or traps for bad stuff in your body; in this case cancer. Therefore it is a gauge of how far the cancer has traveled and it's because of this that you need systemic chemotherapy. If the cancer had originated in the lymph node then you would most likely be diagnosed with lymphoma.

    Thanks for the update. We're thinking about you
