I see . i ask as my dad had colon cancer surgery in march where colon tumor was removed . There was no distant spread . But a pet scan in sept showed a met in the aortocaval node at 10 mm and a met in the liver at 1.6cm.
I was worried re the node .what would be best treatment and
is this serious issue ?
1 liver met was SUV uptake of 5.2
and the node lit up. cea last
what can the chemo
would ablation / removal not be better ?
y would there be no role in ablation removal with 1 node and 1 met?plus they are both small
what is survival like ?
is more for lots of mets right and large ones ?
well they have started folfiri recently and will
scan in january .
but with folfiri can he get more spread while on it?
so what you think with 1 node n 1 liver met at present ?
i am worried that scan in jan will show more ?
hjs cea is 8. Should it not be more higher ?
Can further mets appear still on folfiri. ?
Also , does this mean initially xeloda did not work , ? but he did start them 12 weeks post surgery ( late ) as he was not sure he wanted pills and it was stopped 4 th cycle as scans were being carried out .
That's y I think may be folfiri may not work
