I am new to the board have been lurking but never posted before. I was diagnosed in December of 2011 with colon cancer stage 1 but then found out it had spread to lung and liver so went to stage IV. I have had 5 surgeries and 13 chemo treatments in the last 15 months. My last surgery was Feb 4th of this year on both lungs to remove tumors, 10 in the left and 4 in the right. Just had a CT scan last week and had hoped that things were clean for awhile. I found out today there is something suspicious in my right lung and on my liver. I am so disappointed...have to have a PET scan on Monday and will see the Dr. again next Wednesday. Our plan may be more chemo at this time. The surgery on my lungs was a tough surgery and I don't think I am ready for more at this time. I read your stories and messages everyday and they give me hope. Thanks for reading my message.
