I have been diagnosed with stage iv colon cancer and i am 28 years old. I had surgery on 3/30 to remove part of my colon, my right ovary, and a grapefruit sized tumor in my pelvis. I have 3 more tumors on my liver- one tennis ball and two ping-pong sized. They also found more in my intestinal wall. I am scheduled to get my port on 4/27 and to start chemo on 4/28. The dr has given me the chemo drug information - i will be getting leucovorin, 5fu, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab. i am afraid of how i will feel. I have 2 small kids and i am afraid this is going to kill me. It all happened very suddenly and i am scared and just looking for as much info as i can get.View Thread
