    Hi I am new to the group. My husband was diagnosed with colon cancer Stage 4 in December last year. At first he had it only in his colon and lungs it has since then moved to his liver. Somedays are harder then others. Never thought it would be this hard to fight. He is so optomistic me just plan scared. I spend alot of time during research and learning what I can to make it easier for him. We were to have another PET scan today and it was cancelled because of our insurance. Dr is currently working the problem They want to do liver surgery on May 11, but we wanted more information before that takes place. Does any one had liver surgery for cancer?

    Side Effects (Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)): My husband has a hard time with his hands. Cold temperature or extreme heat drives him crazy.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): My husband took 6 sessions of Oxaliplatin and 5-Fu, 4 session of Avastin. He has metal mouth and neoropathy in his hand and legs. He is fatigue most of the time. We are currently taking a break and checking out liver surgery and then more chemo. He absolutely hates Oxaliplatin says he will never take it again.

    Procedure or Surgery (Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)): My husband problem at first was constipation. He took laxative to help and enema which turned into severe cramps and diarrhea. We rushed him to the hospital. A Ct was performed and a blockage was found and a colonoscopy was order. They found cancer and removed one tumor. During the CT exam they found two tumor on his lungs. One on the right and the other one on the left. Biopsy was done on the one on the right and it was colon cancer. He still hasn't had surgery on the lung tumors. Now colon cancer has been found on his liver. He was diagnosed Stage 4 T3NoMX.
