I have been away from this site for a while, trying to sort things out. Just a refresher, in March 2003, my hubby Hunt was dx with st4 colon cancer, 17 out of 18 lymphnodes infected and mets to the liver. After all the chemo, approx 15 months, cat scan, pet scan, and another high tech scan that I can not think of the name, showed 3 tumors on the liver, surgeon said GO for operation, could be a possible cure. Tuesday, Aug. 3 Hunt was rolled into surgery, within 2 hours he was in recover room. This is so unreal. Three different scans, all read the same, only 3 tumors. The surgeon had to stop the operation and close him, too many tumors. The surgeon actually held his liver, and it is "loaded" with tumors, has anyone ever experienced this. The surgeon could not believe it. He has no answer why the scans did not show all the tumors. Now we are back to step 0. Hunt feels great, even with all the chemo, he has not really suffered any "bad" side effects, cea reads 16, liver function is good. Weight is good, very active. We were given a death sentence in March 03, but we are fighting, living and praying. But test are wrong. I am so afraid. Although I have not been here for a while, I pray daily for all of us and your families. Have anyone ever had test result this wrong. The doc has never experience anything like this. We have an appointment on Monday. As I said, I am afraid.
