"it's there, but is dormant".... isn't it possible that it's simply dead? I hate this looming threat!
I have a friend with complete response after Folfox/Avastin. There was no evidence of his liver met at the resection. Opened him up and found nothing, so only colon resect done.
Three yrs later, the liver met reappeared. Liver resection done- no follow up chemo. Along the way, there was a lung met (before the liver met reappeared), had surgery, and again, no chemo. He's well and approaching the four yr mark.
Incredible treatment response. LOVE IT! Congratulations!
Do keep in touch.
