Looking at the results you just posted, I'm not a medical doctor and just a layperson so it's difficult to say. To me it looks like they need to do an MRI to say for sure whether or not the cancer has metastasized, but again I don't really understand the terminology. Have you met with the oncologist to have the results explained?
I do know that spots can show up that are not cancer, my mom had spots on her lungs show up and they were labeled "watch" as well. It was kind of freaky, but then by her next scan they had gone away and the doctor said it was probably just related to a cold.
I know it can be scary to watch a cancer patient's energy go down. Before my mom started treatment, she was very very ill with symptoms from the cancer. I wondered how anyone in her condition could start treatment. But she started chemo anyway, since her blood work was good. After 2-3 treatments, her energy returned since the tumors began to shrink. Now after 8 rounds of FOLFOX she is really energetic, almost back to normal. She's able to eat and exercise normally. I know it seems counterintuitive based on all of the stigma around chemo, but in her case chemo really helped alleviate the painful symptoms she was experiencing.
I saw earlier your husband was wondering about working. My mom's oncologist told her that many people work throughout FOLFOX, with the exception of a day or two off at a time during their weakest days. My mom is retired so it's not an issue for her, but the doctor was trying to alleviate our concerns about the severity of symptoms. Still, I would imagine my mom could have managed some days of work in there if need be. She has been able to even watch my two very energetic preschool-age children now and again! Of course- everybody responds differently to treatment and with some surgery as part of your husband's treatment plan I'm sure some time off will likely be appropriate.
I'm sorry you are going through this, I know first hand how tough it is. Glad you found this place!
