    I'm confused; I thought Stage 4 meant it HAD spread to organs and Stage 3 was to the lympth nodes. My hubby was told stage 3 with lympth node involvement and went through Folfox treatment.

    Good luck to both of you in your treatments, that's great news!

    Hi, I am also stage 4 with colon and lymph nodes only... I also thought it had to be in other organs, but I was told no, I think they also go by how many lymph nodes are affected and the size of tumer also plays a part... You can always ask your dr. to explain it to you.
    in my thoughts and prayers
