Will give you a brief history. My husband had colon surgery Oct. 03. Two small lessions mets to liver (8mm/1). Treated with 8 rounds of Oxi/Lecoravorin/5ur (sorry not sure of spelling) one week on/one week off. After 8 rounds one lession is no more visible and 1 is 5mm. Had Cat/Scan and Colonscopy again since his first Colonscopy they could not see his entire colon due to total blockage. Lymph 1/16 positive.
Will have Surgery this Tues. for removal of right lobe. Had a 9th treatment four weeks ago, until surgery date set and of course numerous pre-op test. We were told that this is the most aggressive treatment for cure.
Will have chemo after surgery also. Not sure of chemo drugs yet, but know Avastin will be used.
Scared for my hubby, and pray to God that he does as well as he did for his colon surgery.
The surgeon adviced him to try to exercise before surgery because the better shape your in the more speedy the recovery will be (not that easy to get in shape with the sides of chemo).
Read lots of your postings and responded to some. This site has been a blessing for me. Don't know all of you names, but to those of you who have answered my letters on liver resection - Thank-you. Will keep you posted everyone. My prayers and best thoughts to all of you - Cure for all.
