Well primary removed in march 2014. Was a stage 3 but then developed mets , liver and some small in peritoneal .
liver has approx 9, with 2 being atleast 8 cm each.
peri ones are 7mm.
he also had "simple liver cysts" but no mention of
these on scan . Would this disappear themselves ?
No mention of all that . in march:
2 liver mets x 7 cm
about 5/6 were 2 cm
perioneal nodules x4 yof 7mm each
It was colon cancer and primary was removed back in march 2014 as a stage 3.
what does that mass mean .
prob is that both xeloda and irinotecan have not worked . Now he's just starred oxyplatin and raltitrexed . But after first round , cea went from 65 to 80!
so it's not again working right . Plus ALP blood test is now 175 n was 75 in march
Yes there are metastases
so cea should be reducing right ?
But can it b that no chemo
may work as xeloda and irinotecan failed already
Any option if chemotherapy fails?
Wouls chemoembolization etc be beneficial?
