Rise in Liver Function Test

Diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in September, 2001. The results of my LFT drawn on Tuesday came back 1.7 after having been well within the normal range since diagnosis. I suspect that this is bad news. Any feedback?

Hi Secondchance48,The chemo they use on colon cancer is hell on livers,don't worry until they do a pet or cat scan. I'm 5 years post stage 3 ,6pos nodes ,high grade tumour, I have no sign of recurrence but my liver is always swollen and a lot of the time it makes me feel quite off.Good luck Ron.

I'm Stage lll also, lymph pos. Have you tried detoxing your liver? Everything I read about long term cancer survival involves detoxifying our systems--especially the liver since everything filters through there. It's worth a try, eh?

How does one go about detoxing a liver? I had colon cancer surgery in e3arly 2001 and 7 months of chemo. Now my liver function is quite high. Please give me any info you have on this. Thanks.
