My mother who is 77 was recently diagnosed
with colon cancer and it has spread to her
liver.They are not going to do surgery at
this time(she also has cardiovascular disease).She had her first session of chemo
yesterday- CAMPTOSAR, LEUCOVORIN AND 5FU.They will consider surgery if the tumor begins to bleed. I would appreciate comments
from anyone else who has gone through this
scenario.

Thank you

Hi Barbara, This is a difficult place to be. My father was diagnosed with colon cancer and mets to his liver when I was diagnosed with rectal cancer in 1993. I can tell you more, I don't know how much you want to know. I'll check back in a day or two to see if you want to talk about it. Some of the best memories of my life are the ones we shared during his treatment. Cherish the moments that you have, even amidst the pain. They are very precious. Sooz
