Mom just had a colon resection, mets to liver, lungs, thyroid, and one lymph node in the colon. Recovering fairly well from surgery. The oncologist wants her to start in a couple of weeks with chemo (with a port). Is very hopeful and says this can possibly add several quality years to her life. He plans on using Erbitux and Cantosar (spelling??). If she has too much trouble with that he'll go to Avastin and 5FU. I am getting info on all of this, but anyone else have experience with these? Thank you so much for your help and support. I'm a 4 year ovarian survivor, and never thought I would be seeing my Mom go through something like this. Our hope lies in the Lord Jesus, and knowing that he will work through all things - the doctors, chemo, etc. We like her doctors and they are very nice.
