Which way Do I Go?

I have been taking chemo for three years for colon cancer. I have mets in rt. lung and rt. adrenal gland. I have met with several different doctors about removal of adrenal gland but nobody will do it because I have active lung tumors. Has anyone had to deal with this? I am starting back on Erbitux and Irinotican but my doc does not think it will work. How do you ever know what you're suppose to do. My CEA is up to 306 but I look and feel great. My lung tumors are very little but the adrenal tumor is at 4.7 cm. Any advice from anyone would be helpful

MY MOM HAD CYBERKNIFE FOR ADRENAL METS. THOSE TUMORS DID DIE, BUT OTHERS SHOWED UP. MAYBE YOU COULD LOOK INTO CYBERKNIFE FOR ADRENAL METS. THEN TAKE CARE OF THE LUNG METS.

Hi...also, explore rfa radio frequency ablation options. I read somewhere that this may also be an option on adrenal (if inoperable) and on lung mets sometimes. Be persistant and research and contact radiologists . Check under interventional radiology at hospital websites, etc. Sometimes you can send a cd of the ct or scan for review . Do whatever it takes. ! Good luck and God Bless
