    Colorectal cancer metastasized to liver

    Has anyone initially been diagnosed as inoperable (liver) but eventually was operable after treatments?

      It sounds like treatments take care of the cancer. All we need is one cancerous cell to escape from its original source to another place in the body. If chemo or radiation takes care of most of the liver's tumors, then maybe they can remove a smaller portion of the liver.

      I have colon cancer metastasized to my liver. I had partial removal of my colon & have 5 cm multiple tumors on both lobes of the liver. Oncologist is looking for chemo to reduce the tumors so they are operable. I have spoken with several patients/survivors that were in this situation and are cancer free for several years now. "Inoperable" means inoperable today, but can change in the future. All the luck in the world to you and your's.
