Topic: 13.3 cm x 7.6 cm liver metastasis
Just a quick post to offer a bit of hope to all. My 81 year old dad was recently diagnosed with CC as an incidental finding to some minor bladder grief he was having. He has been, and remains well and asymptomatic, despite this whopper of a tumour (13.3 cm x 7.6 cm), in addition to numerous others. This clarifies for me the reason they denied any surgical considerations. He has decided to try chemo, Gemzar and cisplatin, as the medical community cannot imagine his condition will remain comfortable in the long term. I am on the fence myself, as the tumour was stable over the first MRI in mid-June. and the subsequent follow-up in mid-September. However, it is not my decision to make, and Dad really didn't miss a beat in his decision making, asking a number of really astute questions. Here's wishing him, and all suffering with this horrid disease, best of results in their chosen option of dealing with it. I will keep you apprised of how he responds and tolerates the chemo, as I know many, including myself, have questions and doubts.
