Cancer: Colon Message Board

Cancer: Colon Board Index

Hi , I know that I dont post much ,but I do read daily . I appreciate everything that I have learned about colon cancer from everyone on this board. Well it has been one year since my son was dx with stage III colon cancer. We have had his colon resection and he finished his chemo the last of july.[folfox] Back in the summer I was so worried about him not gaining any weight, Im happy to say that the other day when he went into the hospital ,he weighed in at 193. He was down to 165 in july. I never thought that the weight would start coming back.But it has and still climbing. He had his colonosopy while in the hospital, The dr said that he didnt find anything in the colon that it was clean:) . His CEA had rose from 4.5 to 10. On his ct scan they found what the Dr said was a small spot . He said that it was like the size of a small hair. He told me he would have to get with radiolgy to go over the scan and that we will discuss it next week. I think he wants to watch it and see what happens. I dont feel comfortable just sitting back and watching if it will grow. My question is should I ask for a pet scan to see if it is cancer or its just a cyst or somthing. If it is cancer what are the different treatments that they might do on small liver spots. Im going monday to get a copy of his colonoscopy and his ct scan. Maybe I will have more info.
