There is one node involved __
aortocavsl node and it's 10 mm and the liver met is single of 16 mm.is prognosis still poor?
also they have just started chemo - folfiri can this help ?
initially he was stage 3 as in march he had surgery to remove the tumor in colon with no distant spread.
Can an further mets develop while on folfiri?
The dr was more concerned re the distant node than the liver met .will
the folfiri get rid of both ?
The met in liver is 16 mm
and node 10 mm . are
they are not large ?
also the uptake on the pet was 5.2 for the liver lesion ?
are the sized big?
But even with the chemo can
have further spread or the lesions getting even larger ? He has started folfiri ?
last thing , on the pet report it said uptake in the medistinial
nodes was intermittent . this
represent a sarcoid like reaction or poss metastases . what can this mean ?
Would prognosis be poor even with a single liver met ? Would there not make a diff if you have 1 or you have 5?
What we looking at- under 5 years ?
Would u say from
this ides how long ?
My dad's cea was 9.8 in sept, oct was 8 and dec today was 9.
its gone up by 1 point . Does this mean chemo not working ? It has gone
by 1 point
But after 2 cycles would it not go down ?
I see.what can this rise from 8 to 9 mean ? The thing is when he stopped xeloda it actually decreased from 9.8 to 8
