Hey everyone! Long story short, stage 4 colon cancer with mets to lymph nodes for the past year. I have done 12 rounds of 5fu, surgery, they back on maintenance chemo. I just found out it is now in an area of my spine and lungs. I have done 10 radiation treatments for he spinal area and will start chemo (xeloda, olyaplatin, and avastin) next week also. Does anyone out there have mets to the spine? I started out with a back pain, I thought I slept wrong, but the pain continued and do I got checked. Any info will do, I am not afraid to hear the bad stuff! My dr. said I am treatable, THAT'S ALL I NEED TO GET ME THROUGH! I have to admit when I heard it was in the bone, I immediately thought death sentence, which I haven't thought of before. I'm a very positive person, but this did set me back a little!
p.s. I HATE CANCER!!
