My mother was a very similar case to yours except she was 77 y/old at diagnosis. We were told that if she had no further treatment after her colon resection then the cancer would engulf her liver probably within 6 months. At first she did not want chemo but we persuaded her to listen to what the doctors could offer and just try it for at least one cycle. In the end she tolerated 2 cycles of xeloda pills but stopped due to side effects and other health probs. The chemo did shrink the tumors in her liver and she lived for 16 months after original diagnosis (approx 9 months after stopping chemo).
