Re: Stage 4 Colon Cancer

I fell desperated and hopeless. I read many stories hear and found that most of Stage IV patients can prolong their living with liver resects. Without liver resects, I will die soon :(

Re: Stage 4 Colon Cancer

My big disadvantage is that the liver mets are located in both sides of my liver so they are not resected. Is it possible to use chemo to reduce the mets to the level where they can be resected ?

Re: Stage 4 Colon Cancer

Thanks stu

My stage is: T1NOM1

A silly question is that if the liver met is resected by the surgeon. What is the difference between Stage 4 with other stages ?
