U see my dad has a pet scan and it's revealed a single liver met of 16 mm and 1 aortocaval node if 10 mm which is a met. Prior to this he had surgery in march for colon cancer where the tumor was removed and was dukes c1.
he has started folfiri .
i waned to know if this treatment will be effective and what diet he should follow ?
I see . I was concerned as his cea was 8 in sept but when he started folfiri in oct his cea is now 9. If was working would cea not decrease ?
what is also survival like for single liver met and 1 node!
Ok.so with 1 liver met and 1 node it's betrer than say several
my only issue is if this chemo is working as his cea has gone up by 1 point?
He had xeloda after bowel surgery to clear any cells but these 2 mets still appeared, assuming xeloda did not work right?
if that did not work , would this folfori not work too ?
