This is my first time on this site and may not type the correct terminology, so please bear with me. Last August my brother was diagnosed with colon cancer that spread to his brain. He went through a chemo\radiation regiment and had the tumor removed from his brain. He then went through more chemo than went through surgery to get a permanent colostomy bag two weeks ago. We just found out that the cancer cells are back in his brain and that he has to go through more chemo. After the surgery the doctor told me that he was a stage 4, but I do not exactly know what this means. I was in so much shock that I did not get to answer all the questions I wanted to ask. I am writting this message to anyone that could give me suggestions on what to ask, give me hope, or just to listen. I am not sure as to how I should feel. I know that I am quite scared, not sure if I am just in denial....I don't know. If anyone could just respond with any suggestions, or tell me what to expect, I would really appreciate it.
