I have reading message boards and just thought I would put a short story about myself out there. I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in August of 2002. The first oncologist gave me 6-18 months. It has now been 18 months and am doing well I think. I have not had any surgery just chemo--oxaliplatin & 5FU. Last CT scan in July showed a 90% reduction in my liver mets and August 2003 colonoscopy showed the tumor gone and PET scan showed not live tumors left in liver or lungs. Still doing chemo every 4 weeks. Dr. has not said when this will end. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar situtaion???
