I will try to make this as brief as possible. Hubby was dx Sept 03 stage4 colon w/ met to 6 nodes, liver & lung. Dr has lied to us we have found out and i have lost confidence in him. Not his treatment because I have researched and know that his protocol is the same as all the large cancer centers. I hate it when he sugar coats everything for hubby's benefit and then I stop and say well that is probably best cuz "what you don't know can't hurt you". ANYway.. Hubby got a copy of the last CAT and PET scan even tho the dr. said it wasn't back yet. Dr. always said that there isn't anything on the lung but according to tests there is an always has been. His CEA level went from a 6.0 before his last 6 treatments to a 6.7 and was only off for 2 weeks. He is back on 5FU,CPT11 and Lev... 6 more treatments and then we look again. Hubby is SOOO very depressed and I am frustrated and don't know what to do. I am not giving up and I don't feel he has either. There are many many questions that I would like to have answered but can't ask around dr. And I know that you are all going to say change drs. Well, that isn't an option. He is very good at what he does and is close to our home so I can be with hubby during dr. visits. No other good option at this point.
