A little history:
Hubby dx'ed Jan 06 - surgery to remove colon
Apr 06 surgery to remove the tumor and most of the plumbing,
hot chemo washes, and a permenet illiostomy, followed by 9
rounds of folfuri. Mar 08 more surgery to remove the bladder
and prostrate -permenet illioconduit. Two tumors were found in
the liver, there is also now a spot on his diaphragm, and one in
the upper lung - these are approximately 4mm each. They are not
worrying about the spots right now. We saw a liver surgeon on
Tuesday, and the 2 tumors are close together, and they are able to
remove that part of the liver. The hospital called yesterday, and
surgery has been set for Monday morning. The surgeon did say that
if he can see the spot on the diaphragm that he will remove it as well.
We were told that this being his 4th major surgery, that this will be
the last surgery they will be able to do.
My question is what options are there for dealing with the lung and
diaphragm mets other than chemo?
The fight continues!
My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
