      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

                  You can do the following , Test the stool sample for occult blood especially when I get the dark stool. Keep a look out for streaks of red blood on the stool.
