Hello , sorry to hear that your tumor celsl came back after 5 years! Sorry that you lost your only son...

When the first time doctor found out that my cancer spread to liver was not by C-scan. C-scan showing nothing abnormal, but my tumor marker kept going up. So doctor ordered Pet-scan, and found out 2 spots on my liver; then doctor ordered MRI to locat the tumor and to conifrm the size of the tumor on liver...MRI showing numerous hepatic metastases...
I am not sure if you have the same experience?

Please do not give up! You have to keep a positive thinking, positive thing will happen.
Yes I was stage 2, but it spread to liver. It is as bad as stage 4 now.
I also know a guy who was DX to PC stage 4. And he took the Folfrinox treatment, without surgery. When I met him again, he was thin, but strong. His tumor shrank half of the original size. If you check subject "folifrinox" at this Message Board,...

Thank you so much for your information, which is very encouraging.
I was very hesitated between the "natural way" or the chemotherapy. But after I noticed the fast growth of the tumor marker, I decided to go with Folfirinox , though it is a very hard treatment, but I believed and hoped it might have a more effective way to stop the spreading of the tumor. I could do the natural way and or herbal way after...
