I can't be scientific because it was a yr ago but thats my layman experience with the idea I had some.

Make sure you are watched carefully.
Like CRguy says "You miss more by not looking....than not knowing"

I hope you get a complete response. Let us know.

So don't freak out about this. If it turns out that you do indeed have small active mets in your liver, they can be treated in multiple ways without performing surgery on your rectum.
