My Mother has Stage IV colorectal cancer which has metasized to the liver and last week we found out the 5FU has not stopped the spread. It is now in her lymph nodes in her liver and 2 spots on her lungs. SHE IS 49!!! Because of the large rectal tumor, she now has a osti bag. She has no one to talk to and is down. She has always been very active-Postal carrier walking 9 miles a day. She has lost 30lbs and is homebound most of the time which is depressing for her. She is now on Avastin and 5FU and looking for a break. Anyone out there who share the same issues as she does? I am trying to provide her with every resource out there.
