    Side Effects (Near death experience): Right hemicolonectomy. Followed by Folfox. Only side effect was neuropathy which persists. Reoccurrence in liver with surgery and resection of right lobe plus more. Surgeon did not leave enough liver to regenerate.. Reoccurrence of cancer in remaining liver. Lesions removed with SBRT at UF. No side effects. Have a liver that is too small now due to surgeon. Lost 80 pounds and there is no treatment. Cancer is in remission but suffering from very small piece of liver trying to maintain a 6’2” 200 pound body. I now weigh 140 pounds.
