Hi everyone, Just an update on my MOM. She was diagnosed in Feb. with metastisized cc to the abdomen and liver from a stage 1 cancer in a polyp. She has had 4 chemo sessions and got her PET scan results today. In the onc's words the chemo has had "a dramatic effect on all areas". It can no longer be seen in the liver and has shrunk significantly in the abdomen area. We meet with Dr Sugarbaker to see if she is a candidate for the pertineal chemo wash or if they will just continue chemo for awhile first. We are feeling really good with this positive news. It has been a long 4 months with no good news. This news enforces our beliefs that she will be able to fight this monster for a VERY VERY LONG time.

Hi Erika,

Glad to hear the good results. I was dx'ed in Feb with Stage IV rectal cancer with liver mets. I also have had 4 chemo treatments. I had good results as well - lots of tumor shrinkage (although my liver spots are still visible). That's awesome that your Mom's aren't visible at all anymore!!!
