The confusion is overwhelming. I was originally diagnosed with Stage IV Poorly differentiated signet ring cell adenocarcinoma. surgery removed my a tumor, appendix, part of my colon,small intestine the omentum (which had tumors in it) and several lymph nodes of which one had a tumor. A month later they changed the diagnosis to goblet carcinoid of the appendix. They said that it is rare but I can't find much more info. They said that appendix and colon cancers are treated the same. They are treating it with Folfox and Avastin which I will start Friday. With the original diagnosis, I was told that with chemo, they can give me some time but that it would come back stronger and would be fatal. Needless to say, I changed doctors. I have read alot of the message boards but don't know what to compare this situation to. Does anyone have any info or help?
