I had cholorectal cancer, stage 3, in 2006. I had surgery that removed 18'' of my ascending colon and 32 lymph nodes, followed by 6 months of chemotherapy. I have since been discharged with no reoccurances. What is my life expectancy with this medical history? I am otherwise healthy, although the chemotherapy seems to have weakened me overall. My systolic blood pressure, for example, is 10 to 20 points higher. I've been left with surface neuropathy on the face of my hands and on the bottom of my feet. Thankyou. Jerry
I am 65 years old.
