We are not doctors and can't really provide advice on your treatment. All we can do is provide information about our own history and treatments. Some like myself also provide information about the drugs used and side effects, maybe some insights on currently evolving research to watch out for. We are advocates for information and getting second opinions. You don't provide us much useful information in your post for use to comment on. What sort of questions do you have. Seems you have only had surgery. What was the diagnosis exactly? What Stage Colon or Colorectal cancer. Did you get any chemotherapy, if so what? You mention Liver metastases? Whats your current status?

Good Luck
