Hello, am new. My wonderful son in law had Crohns since a child and 2 years ago had a bowel resection and they tested and they found it he had small bowel cancer. He was treated with Chemo and was fine until now. He just had another surgery because of a blockage and we thought they had to do another bowel resection because of the Crohns but they took out a foot of intestine and it was cancer again. This time a large tumor was the actual blockage. Surgeon said he had Stage 4 Cancer and it was in his Peritonium also and he could not take or scrape it out as he said "he needs that to live" Surgeon said he had spot all over the Peritonium but not in the Colon. Been reading alot and the entire family is trying to find out what kinds of treatment he should go for. He just had surgery on Tues January 29 so he does have to heal first. When His Mom asked the surgeon "Doctor will I loose my son"? The surgeon said nothing, anyway we are all going out of our minds to find something and hearing about people surviving with State 4 Cancer and still living is very hopeful. However, because he has Crohns already and small bowel cancer already, wondering if anyone knows the route to go. At least we can bring up suggestions to the Oncologists once we all go there with him. My Son in Law is not yet 30.
Thank you and bless you all.
