I've heard some docs say that one of most common symptom that we have mets to liver is that you would have a dramatic weight loss suddenly. Who can confirm it?

Thank You for sharing your thoughts =)

    No, not necessarily. I had mets to my liver - no weight loss at all.

    Nope... no weight loss here. None at all.

    I had a walnut sized liver met and I did not feel a thing. I never would have even known it was there. Perhaps if you had some sort of extreme liver involvement then you would have symptoms, but otherwise I think when the mets are small most patients are asymptomatic.

    I was diagnosed stage 4 in Dec.05 with liver mets or more specifically met....I had lost a lot of weight but no one ever attributed it to liver mets...i thought it had to do with the colon part of the cancer....

    Hi, I lost 8 kilograms from symptoms to operation for stage4 with one liver met, and then 7 more while in hospital for my resection and liver wedge resection. I do not know which one caused the weight loss. Virginia.

    Hubby has liver mets.. questionable as to how many now, and they are small. Since dx he's had colon resection and chemo , lost about 10 lbs after the surgery, but weight has been stable since then . God bless and good luck. Diane

    I have so many liver mets that they can't even count them on the scans...I lost about 8 lbs. after surgery last year due mostly to the anemia I had from the bleeding cancer in the cecum area. I've been off chem for about 7 wks. now and need to "watch it" as weight is creeping up.

    Nope, not here. Huge liver met, no weight loss.
    A little pain was the first symptom, dont know if it was caused by the liver though..

    No weight loss here due to the mets in the liver. Overall I lost weight but that was due to chemo, etc.
