My husband's colon cancer nightmare began almost 2 years ago. He had colon resection, no chemo follow-up (unfortunately). 15 months later, he started chemo since by then his CEA had risen dramatically and PET was showing small mass in liver. Chemo for 10 months, then stopped as his CEA began rising more. Now besides PET, CT's and Ultrasound are showing increase in mass in liver. The scariest part is that it is right up by the Portal Vein. We'll see surgeon next week. Has anyone had similiar experience with liver metastasis close to Portal Vein, and if so, what was your treatment? Would you have done anything differently? All advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you and best of luck and health to you all!
