I just found out, this last Thursday, that I have colon cancer. I also have swollen lymph nodes and a good sized spot on my liver. The oncologist at the hospital said it is probably Stage 4 metastisized colon cancer. Is anyone in the forum dealing with this?  My first doctor's appt is tomorrow. The biopsy results are in but they won't tell me over the phone.  Thanks all :)

Sorry to hear you were diagnosed with colon cancer and have a large spot on your liver. I was diagnosed in 2013 as stage 3A. I had surgery and 2 out of 14 lymph nodes were affected, I have been on chemo since then. I hope your prognosis is good after talking with your doctor, my advice to you is to stay positive, get the best medical treatment you can, keep notes of everything and do your research. Praying for you and may God bless and heal you!

My momma was diagnosed 20 yrs ago with stage 4 colon cancer. Her disease was horrible and prognosis wasn’t good at that time 20 yrs ago. I’m a student nurse pursuing a career in oncology studies. Treatment has come soooo far since then! My momma seriously had a foot of her colon removed, colostomy bag, hysterectomy, and all lymph nodes removed. Like I said it had metastasized everywhere and the dr’s did what they knew at the time to prolong her life. Now a days after studying the medical processes of today, prognosis and treatment have come along way! Please seriously don’t let my mother’s story scare you as her circumstances were set in the dinosaur age! Be positive listen to your dr and make the best decisions on what information is available at the present time. I only tell you this because everyone knows someone who had a cancer treatment some time ago, and the end results might have been grim at best. And these people are always willing to share their experiences, but don’t let that discourage you at all. They have the best intention usually but aren’t educated on current treatments/outcomes. Your dr knows more than they did so many years ago. I wish you the best of luck! Stay strong hold your head up high!
