    Hi Exaussie, Sorry to hear about your sons diagnosis, another one so young! I can relate to it a bit as I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago with stage Iv age 28. It's definitely something no one expects at this age. Has your son tried other types of chemo before considering trials? I was always told to leave trials until chemo isn't working, but everyone is different. I get nervous when I think of trial...

      Hello :) That is fantastic news! Congrats on being Ned! Do you mind sharing some info on what your initial diagnoses was, like what organs the disease spread to etc? I am a stage Iv patient, diagnosed at age 28. It had spread to ovaries, bladder and liver. I've had 2 major surgeries and within a month after my liver surgery it was already back in my liver and pelvic region :/ I just like to compare stori...

        Hi Bella, I am also a stage Iv patient, I have had two surgeries so far, 1st was to remove the primary and cancer that spread to both ovaries and bladder, my second surgery (only end of August 2013) was to remove it from my liver. It was all looking positive for me until about a month ago when I was told it was back in my liver (the side that wasn't resected) and also my pelvic region. I guess for me it's not real...

          I will be praying for your mum, I'm sorry to hear she isn't a candidate for surgery. It's such an awful disease! *touch wood* I can finally cancer free. I just recently had my 2nd surgery to remove the last bit of cancer from my liver. When I was diagnosed it had spread from my colon to both ovaries, bladder and liver. My prognosis wasn't looking good but now all my dr's think I am one lucky girl that not many wi...

            Hi, Sorry to hear about your mums diagnosis. I actually have colon cancer myself (stage iv). I don't want to alarm you, but my dr told me that ovarian cysts don't cause symptoms. For two years I was having all the symptoms of ovarian cancer, my dr kept brushing it off because of my age (28). I eventually demanded to get a referral to see a gyno and from there they found the cancer. I had tumours on bo...

              Hi everyone, I have stage iv colon cancer (not ovarian) but my cancer did spread to both ovaries. I had surgery almost a year ago to remove it, which they removed tumours from both ovaries and i lost my right ovary and only half of my left. I did 6 months chemo and stopped at end of may this year as I was scheduled to have liver surgery. During my time on chemo my periods stopped due to the drug I was on. So I did...

                Sorry to hear about your son :( I was diagnosed with stage IVb CC 10 months ago at age 28. It was found in both ovaries, bladder and liver. Given my age they were very aggressive during surgery and successfully removed it all except in my liver. Apparently it is standard to do liver operation at a different time. I went on chemo for 6 months and only now have a date for liver surgery (in 4 weeks). Cases like your son...

                  Hi, I just recently seen my colon surgeon for my 3 month check up. I asked him the same question about liver transplant as I have multiple mets on my liver and are inoperable. His answer was they don't do liver transplants on cancer patients because its a high risk of cancer spreading (think he was referring to stage IV patients). I am only 28 so I would have been all for it if possible. Lisa

                    Oh and every doctor has a different protocol. I have seriously never heard of a doc not wanting to operate cause if chance it spreading. I know some docs don't believe in chemo. I think it's just crazy. You look at survival statistics from years ago till now.. New drugs have shown to be effective. He should ask his oncologist about avastin. That is the new drug known as 'the savior' and prolongs life for those who ar...

                      I am really sorry you are in this situation :( your hubby needs to stop being so stubborn and needs to realise he's not in a good state. He needs to let people help him and also try anything that is possible that could help. The symptoms will only get worse and this is what he needs to realise :( I really wish the both of you luck and that this new drug shows some improvement in shrinking his tumors but also keeping ...
