Stage 4 spread to liver
I’m in total shock, I have just found out that I have stage 4 bowel cancer spread to liver, they are saying my cancer in my bowel has been growing for at least 10 years and that it is very bulky at 6cm. They’ve found at least 5 tumours on her liver with the biggest at 3.4cm but said that it’s possible it can spread as i may have cancer cells in different places which have travelled but they will be microscopic. They said they wouldn’t operate on the bowel because it would delay my chemo and they want to tackle all of the cancer. They said that it is unlikely they’ll be able to operate on the liver but they’ll send everything over to Leeds for a second opinion. But looks very unlikely due to so many meds of my liver in different places. She said that people usually only live around 2 years with just having the chemo to control the cancer like i have,sometimes people live longer such as 5 years. 😔 I will be having xelox as my chemo in a couple of weeks.
She said the future is uncertain but we wont know more until we hear back from Leeds, Chemo is the only options at the minute, they really don't think Leeds will op as too many meds on my liver. I’m in total shock as haven’t been ill at all only found this due to seeing doctor for HRT picked up anaemia in bloods! (Sorry for the grammar so hard to write this)
