    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Went in for surgery with a 90% diagnosis that the tumor on her liver was not cancerous. Turns out it was cancerous and not the primary tumor. Second surgery on sigmoid colon which was the primary tumor. In shock from the diagnosis because of her age and only experienced symptoms for about 6 weeks.
