Stage 4 bowel cancer


Scan results devastated- help second line treatment

Hello all,
Im afraid ive not been very active on the forum as ive been in and out of hospital and as a result ive not been able to have any chemo for six months.
I had my CT scan results yesterday and whist i was anticipating some spread i did not expect it to be so vast. Previous CT only showed two lymphnodes para-aortic and celiac trunk. However, latest scan shows spread in Liver, Lung, peritoneum and lymph node by mid spine and bone.
Oncologist suggested not currently strong enough to start chemo and will review in two weeks. She has suggested second-line chemo of irinotecan having previously had folfox. I was wondering what second line treatment people have had after spread and folfox??
Really worried that wont be strong enough in two weeks as was only discharged on Monday evening and so spread will continue.
All advice will be appreciated :x::x:


Thinking of you @Wren17 and sending hugs :x::x:
