Hello everyone, I would appreciate any advise and help please.
Diagnosed with rectal cancer in February 2012 with solitary liver met. I had few lung nodules at that time, small on both sides.
Had rectal/liver resection in March followed by 12 Xelox with Avastin and 7 Xeloda and Avastin.
CT recently showed increase in size of lung nodules, still under 1cm. Saw thoracic surgeon who did thoracotomy on left side
took 7 nodules out ,4 were malignant. I am already pretty much back to normal. I have nodules on the right side as well.
Question is what is best course of action now? Surgery on the right side, followed by chemo or chemo first. I will meet with both next week but would appreciate advises from anybody about your experiences. I physicially feel andlook great. Recovery from both surgeries was fast and I tolerated chemo well. Will probably go on xeliri next.
Thank you so much and I will participitate and help anyone any way I can from now on
