Re: Stage 4 to NED- Please tell us

Spazzyjanet, Good to hear that he is having an MRI. I have to advocate for my husband to get them instead of CTs as his CTs never picked up on his liver tumor. (I honestly don't know why the oncologist had ordered a CT in May when he originally said that surveillance was going to be with MRIs.) The...

Re: Stage 4 to NED- Please tell us

Get to resection then you are going for “cure.” I know it’s scary. I’m still scared. I went from stage 3c to 4 when one met invaded my liver. I had it resected immediately and no chemo needed for now. Life is relatively normal and everyday I am waiting for the show to drop. But I also think many peo...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Update- Onc said no chemo needed! She says my Cea is 1.5 and the committee said no chemo at this time. Next scan in December. Surgeon had clear margins and my blood work is good. I’m terrified. Not sure to be happy or waiting for the shoe to drop. I will now do anything and everything to keep this N...

Re: Dang 1cm Liver Met!

So glad you are home and recovering! I will definitely do chemo if offered. I hope this is it...but I have some really crappy luck! I’m sure they will try a different chemo because this last lesion either grew during folfox chemo or after... I heard folfiri is wicked. Worried about my hair. I wish y...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Latest dr visit- pathology says it was two tumors instead of one by the surgeon says it really looked like a dumbbell so he figured pathology would see it as two 1cm ea. Clear margins. I’m healing well and I feel fine. Hoping this doesn’t return but I know the reality. 70 percent that this will reoc...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Such good news! I have been bummed over your last posts and stayed away from the site a bit since i have my first 6 month scans next week. Heading back from Saudi Arabia tomorrow and have a PET/CT scan on Wednesday, follow- up with my Oncologist on Thursday, and a one-year follow-up Colonoscopy on ...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Update- resection complete. Surgeon said it was uneventful. It went exactly as planned. They did an internal liver ultrasound d and it was clean. No idea what pathology will say or how they determine chemo. I can control exercise, diet, and attitude. That’s about it. Stage 4 sucks and there are tons...

Re: Dang 1cm Liver Met!

Ok resection done! I’m still here! I was sent home after a day. I was walking and eating on my own so they said I could recoup at home. Completely laproscopically and the surgeon said all looked clear via the internal ultrasound. I plan on being very careful and really taking care of myself. I agree...

Re: Dang 1cm Liver Met!

You have my deep sympathies. Hang in there and remain hopeful. I had a 1 cm liver met, which was diagnosed immediately after colon cx diagnosis. After 6 FOLFOX treatments, the liver met was completely obliterated! The surgeon could not find it at surgery (open procedure) so he removed the entire lo...
