Stage 4 bowel cancer


Scan Worry

It's been a few months since my return of the cancer. I'm stage 4 with the main tumor in my rectum a nodule in my lung and when fitting the stoma the surgeon noticed something dodgy on my peritoneum. Sent it away and came back with cancer :(

I've had 3 months of chemo and had my MRI and CT scan and see my oncologist Tuesday for the results. I'm bricking it to be honest. I just want to know if it's worked :/

I've looked online to see if you can tell it's working lol. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know. I'm always checking out the posts :)

Ps. The stoma is not tooooo bad. I'd love it gone but as the surgeon said "it's a bag or a box" I recently found out my amazing lovely surgeon was diagnosed with a brain tumor :( cancer really does suck!

I'll let you know the results. Stay strong fellow legends :x::x::x::x::x:

We have the same worry ahead of us! 3 months chemo, scan in two weeks to see if it has worked! Stay positive, healthy mind is very important! Good luck to you and keep us posted! 🙏🙏


Hey all, saw my oncologist and the news wasn't great. The lung tumor has shrunk a bit but the main tumor in my rectum hasn't done much. So I'm back on chemo :x::x:


Hi @Drummercraig, really sorry to hear this, although it is mixed news isn’t it. Let’s hope the chemo will have a big impact on the rectal tumour.

Take very good care, Kim :x::x:

What chemo are you on @Drummercraig ? are eligible for the targetted therapies like cetuximab? It is good news that the lung met has shrunk, and hopefully after a bit more chemo the rectal tumour will do the same :x::x::x:
