Hi. My dad had a pet scan as there was a liver lesion . The SUV uptake was 5.2. Is that high?
he had surgery in march to remove colon tumor but had no distant spread then .
the liver met is 16mm and 1 aortocaval node ,
What can be done re 1 liver met of 16 mm and 1 aortocaval node which has a met ?
what prognosis like ?
Iv not had a reply ?
Even though theres just 1 liver met would it not b best to remove it?
The primary in colon was removed in march . At that point all liver etc was clear.
I am ams surprised that his lat scan was April which was all
clear, but the sept scan revealed the liver met and node.
the uptake on the liver met is 5.2?
thy saying chemo
too but then whem we got second opinion the dr said can remove both node and met as it's small
volume so we are confussed .
what can the
chemI exactly Do?
I see . Could it be that after rremoval of the primary some cells escaped ? As prior to the operation in march he had approx 4 ct scans all of which were clear.
this chemo work in killing these 2? Is it worth taking ?
Based on 1 liver met n node at present what you think re prognosis approx ?
also do u feel that the cells escaped after surgery or could they have been there anyway from before ? Its just take all scans were clear before
Does this mean the xeloda did
nt work ?
How can I rate u?
Is a16 mm liver met large and a 10 mm node ?
I have no option to rate ? plz send the link
My dad's was was 9.8 in sept, oct was 8 and now 9 in dec. does this mean chemo
not working ? Had 2 cycles so far
