Hello Everyone, My wife was diagnosed stage 4 colon cancer a year ago next week. She had gone almost 1- 1/2 years being misdiagnosed and not taken seriously.
A doctor friend decided to check her out and found a 5" tumor obstructing her transverse colon and small intestine. The cancer has invaded her liver and has affected roughly half of it. She has 2 spots in her mesentary that are approx 2" each. She is now on her last chemo protocol that she is eligable for. Her cancer markers were 40 last October but have continued to climb every month. At the beginning of March, she now has a marker count of 258. I just don't know what to think anymore. Doctor keeps telling us to concentrate on today and not to get to far ahead of ourselves. It is hard to believe at times that she is sick. Today she started her 3 day chemo cycle and she is very sick. The end of this month is her next MRI. PLease say a prayer for her. She is 51 and beautiful.
