I don't post and I don't have cancer but I read because my wonderful son in law was diagnosed stage 4 in February 2008? He was 38 with minimal symptoms but enough to warrant a colonoscopy . They found a baseball size tumor and it had spread to his live. He had his surgery and later liver resection and was considered Ned . A year later he had a perforated bowel which almost killed him and he ended up with an illiostomy . After 6 months he had a reversal . He had an recurrence in the liver but had cyber knife and has been cancer free since. Don't laugh at my explanation as I am not up on all the terms. I post this to give people with this awful diagnoses. I know ot is easy days but we take all we can get. You are all amazing people with courage and hope. I will pray for all of you.

Your son in law is very blessed to be ned. He has been through a lot but sounds so good he is doing well. Pray this nasty cancer never raises it's ugly head again. Jeff
