I’m currently on my 63 round of chemo. Diagnosed July 2019. Surgery February 2020, colon cancer totally obliterated. It’s the liver mets that just will not go away!!! Tried different chemo, a clinical trial, and now pills and Avastin infusion every other week. 

Has anyone else experienced this?? What was your treatment like? These pills totally kick my butt!! 

Thank you!!!

Stage IV colon cancer with mets to the liver

Hi, 

I know just what you mean. I was diagnosed February 2020 with aggressive treatment: multiple surgeries and chemo every other week. I went into remission for six months but it came back in April 2021. It didn’t go to my liver but I have it in my abdominal cavity by my pelvis. They say it’s inoperable. I get 3 different chemo meds every other week. Recently, I went down to maintenance dose which just means my doctor took me off of one and reduced the flouricil because of extreme side effects. I had the works( hands and feet swelling and burning, mouth sores, nausea, heartburn, and fatigue). I was sleeping a lot and getting tired when I went out. I asked my doctor how to get rid of heartburn and she took me off the steroids and put me on omeprazole.  plus I don’t drink anything carbonated or dairy. That helped a lot. I hope chemo gets rid of the cancer in your liver. I’ll pray for you too.
