Hello all -
So, I know this have been covered in other posts, but I'm having a hard time finding the details. I'm scheduled to go in on Monday for a follow-up at MSK. We're going in laparoscopically the make sure disease in, indeed, confined to liver, and if it is, they will place a pump. Can anyone tell me what the timeline for this looks like? If the lap looks good, do they right in? Is pump placement open ? How long to do you stay in hospital to recover from pump placement?
This is crazy, but we are trying to figure this out because my husband is having his knee replaced on Thursday!

1/8/19 DS Stage 4 with Liver Mets; Successful Colon Resect
2/18/19 Started Folfox -- CEA 70
5/8/19 - BRAF mutation -- switch to Triplet Therapy: Encorafenib, Binimetinib, Cetximab
6/13/19 - CEA dropped from 214 to 22
8/29 - CEA jump to 30-- scans reveal liver spread, though still confined. triplet therapy abandoned; some concern about PIC3 mutation interfering with BRAF treatment
9/1 - 10/4 -- no treatment
10/4 -- folfoxfiri to stem further progression; pump placement in January (hopefully)
