Oh the joys of colorectal cancer, they just keep a coming.
first off, had my liver surgery 8 weeks ago, and before I went back to Oncologist I emailed him and asked for a colonoscopy which I had last Friday. When I awakened the Dr. said that she could only go up a very little ways as a tumor blocked her from going further up. She said she kept trying but couldnt get around it. She said she took several biopsies.
Saw Oncologist today and it is a new primary colon tumor. This tumor did not show up on the PET/CT scan that was taken a month before liver surgery, this tumor also did NOT show up on a CT scan taken the week before liver surgery. It only showed up on colonoscopy, go figure.
So having another PT/CT scan next Wednesday, back to Oncologist then onto surgery again. Shame I didn't ask for colonoscopy BEFORE the liver surgery.
