I was diagnosed in June 2015. My situation was very similar to your mom's. I had 10+ tumors in my liver. The largest was 7.5cm almost completely overtaking the left lobe of my liver, many smaller tumors, some of the around 4cm, badly located.
I had HAI pump treatment by Dr. Kemeny and after 3 liver surgeries I got to NED status.
Your mom's situation's again looks a lot like mine. I also had this sudden drop in CEA. Very good prognostic factor. My CEA dropped from 140 to <2 after 4 FOLFIRINOX treatments and I got complete pathological response. I was NED - no evidence of disease on all my check ups since my last surgery in May 2016. My CEA dropped in October 2015. At that time my surgeon came to me with my pathology report really jumping from joy and said that I would make it. Dr. Kemeny said that my cancer that my cancer was dead due to chemotherapy.
My next check up approaches and of course I am scared what it will bring. Anyway I feel very well. I eat, exercise, ski, jog, do all the pleasant things I thought were forever denied for me and most of all I can see my small kids grow.
There is hope! Good Luck!
