    Colon cancer - treatment time period

    My husband is scheduled for a second attempt to remove polyps & "see" if the cancer has spread. About a year & a half ago he had his first colonoscopy & they removed 9 polyps. 3 of which were cancerous.. so we've been told. I am having the absolute hardest time grasping what is actually going on because he is so vague & hates talking about his health. I'm only given quick overviews of what is going on & small bits of information from his doctor. I don't want....
