I went solo to be with my mother beforehand, then did a small in-house with one set of kids / grandkids one day, and the other kid/partner the next ! Lotsa' food and fun ... AND ...

Sending best wishes !!!!

A CT with contrast is a good imaging protocol and should be a good screening for your issues.

Re: Percentage Of Colon/Rectal Cancer That Metastasis To The Liver?

Yup that would make sense in their patient population base ... BUTT ... they state that as a general population stat and I am not buying it. I found a 2017 paper which referenced a much lower liver met rate : The liver is the most common site of metastasis in patients with colorectal cancer due to i...
