He states new sub pleural nodule but no size?
a nodule IS a met right in a colon cancer pt?
The thing is assuming thsts a met ( it's under. 1. Cm), there is 1 liver met and 1 lymph node .
so far xeloda and irinotecan
have not worked .
if don't have further chemo and ablate the 3 mets with microwave ablation / nano knife , what is approx survival ?
If it's not a metastasea, would the rafiologist not put a size on the report ?
Is it a good option ablating the three mets ?
Or is chemothearly better ?
Confussed . Existing onc sdischarged my dad and said nothing we can do as irinotecan did not work .
but got a second opinion as he said he should
have oxyplatin and get these small meta ablated . Don't know what is best
Well not much he said fight this . But is ablation worth iT or should be we do chemo first ?
if chemo has not worked on irinotecan , does this mean person is chemo resistant and no chemotherapy would work ?
Well that isn't an easy question to answer since just because one type of chemo is ineffective it doesn't mean another won't be. But unfortunately at this point I think you need to be told that this is very advanced cancer and his prognosis is not good
it's better having 3 small
mets than lots of mets right ?
what would u say in terms of prognosis ?
Would this be the case even with ablation and chemo?
Would you recommend to have chemo ?
Thx a lot for ur view . Would
u advise alternate treatment. ?like
vit c infusions ?
I see . It's a matter of luck even the prognosis right ? some with 10
,2O mets even live years right .we just stuck whether to hve chemo or go with alternate treatment ?
should we ablate the 3 mets whilst they are small ?
But won't the liver met atleast b gone and then won't invade the organ and things?
could it be after ablation and chemo no more mets may appear ?
A liver met is dangerous once it gets big right and starts affecting the liver ?
well from august 2014 to jan 2015 the liver met grew by 2mm. Is that slow gowing?
Last query sorry , what actually kills a person from the cancer ? Is it the cancer invading the organs etc ?
thats we thinking get the liver met ablated
