          Hi, I think it is pretty manageable and can be controlled - they ought to put u on chemo right away - get them to do a KRAS test in the tumor sample they may have taken out during colonoscopy - after 3 months of chemo - preferably with erbitux ( if he is KRAS wild) he will have good response After that pl seek out a surgical option - at the current stage both institutions may give the same approach - the key ...

              Hi, There are many options in this case - I would suggest sbrt , or direct chemo to the liver with a HAI pump , or RFA or even further resection if you get a good surgeon and there is adequate liver available post surgery or chemo embolisation. If u are KRAS wild then erbitux can reduce tumour size to get to resectability. Please take a opinion at one of the larger institutions

                  They should have put you in chemo befor em the colon resection unless it was obstructing - if the spread is limited to liver there can be a liver resection option. The diet is basically either ketone if diet with vegetables and fruits and antioxidants predominantly. Pl see David Schiber ( spelling ?) book on cancer for the right diet
