My stepson, 32, dianosed Jan. 06, rectal cancer stage III 4 of 9 nodes positive. Tumor removed, Temp. iliostomy, reversed this week.Regimine of Oxy FU5. 1st CT scan showed "spots on lungs there were pooh-poohed because we needed to deal with the rectal cancer first. CT scan results today showed that "spots" that were on lungs originally had reduced in size. These spots are so small they cannot be biopsied. Oncologist suggest that we do another CT in 6 weeks and "just watch". I feel that the fact that they responded to the chemo means they are "something". Has anyone else had this? Does anyone have any suggestions?
