Husbands stage 4 signet ring colon cancer
Husband is 68 had colon cancer 4 years ago treated with surgery and chemo all annual scans and bloods clear last done April 2021
By September2021 the cancer had blocked his small bowels found during an emergency operation eventually performed in November They also discovered a tumour in his sigmoid colon .
He has be told it is stage 4 and without chemo he only has a few months
We saw oncologist 22nd December who gave us a plan of another scan on 11th Jan 2022 meeting on 14th and chemo 18th.
This has not happened we don't know why his chemo won't start until 3rd Feb now
I'm so worried as told it is fast growing as 5months from clearApril scan to Sept blocked bowels shows
He is still not opening his bowels fully now since op. Im concerned his bowels will block again, last time he vomited faeses before anything was done. and we have been told a blockage is what will ultimately kill him
We have another meeting with oncologist on 18th Jan the day we had expected chemo to start
The 3rd Feb is another 2 weeks not sure he will be OK until then in pain now
Has anyone else experienced such a fast growing tumours or this type of cancer
We have got some CBD oil 40% to try as it is said to shrink tumours but some research suggests it can encourage growth but willing to try anything
He has also been told to have a low residue diet
