I am a registered nurse in Australia. My husband was diagnosed with appendix cancer in 1989, had a right sided hemicolectomy, no chemo or radiation therapy at that time. 4 years later he got upper abdo pain and was diagnosed with metastasies in right adrenal gland (large), liver, lungs, bone, and was then given surgery to remove bulk of adrenal gland cancer, chemo and radiation therapy for palliation. He died 6 months after finding these secondaries. He was 42 yrs old.
