Subject: feedback re: Ileostomy reversal followed by chemo
I have had chemo and an ileostomy following stage 4 colon cancer. There were metastases to my liver and lung. Following treatment all had been irradicated but recently there has been a small area in my lung that has returned. My doctor at Sloan Kettering would like to re-connect my colon and then plans to resume chemo in two months. My concern is that I'm not sure if I will feel well enough following ileostomy reversal to procede with chemo. My doctor said I should be fine.
Has anyone had a reversal followed by Chemo? I wonder if you would be kind enough to share your experience with me. It may help me decide what to do.
