    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Went to Dr. For simple problem, then told I had a tumor. CT done and told I had lesions on liver and enlargement of area of small bowel. Liver biopsy done dx carcinoid ca metastasized to liver from small bowel. Surgery on small bowel, 2 tumors, 1 lymph node removed, hopefully all ca in small bowel removed but liver covered with lesions and inoperative. Five months later started on Octreotide injections for liquid stools.
