I completed the 5Fu/Mitomyicin in Feb. 10 and scans in May showed spots on the liver. Had a PET and MRI and the results were inconclusive. Had another CT in July and no change. CT in December shows lymph node near the original tumor site in the rectum. EUS confirms cancer in the lymph node. PET scan also shows activity in the liver and a lymph node in that region. Original tumor site and rectal wall are clear. I have been feeling great with alot of thanks to this board so this comes as quite a surprise.
Additional Onc and Surgeon appts in the coming weeks with indication of Cisplatin and Xeloda. I've seen other posts regarding liver that mention Carboplatin and Paclitaxel. Since spread and recurrence seem to be rare any others that have had similar and can provide information will be helpful.
