I underwent a colon re-section with 50% of my colon being removed due to adenocarcinoma (Hagitts's Stage I). Thereafter, I underwent Chemotherapy with 5FU and Oxalipaltin. Had five cycles, which ended in Jul 2011. I now have numbness beneath my feet, feels like there are sand grains in my socks and shoes. Is there any remedy for that?
I have irregular bowel movements. I wake up at odd hours to go to the toilet. Stools seem normal. There is lack of sleep and slight pain below my right rib cage especially when lying down. CEA is normal. Haven't gone for any check-up yet. What are the chances of a metastasis in the liver?View Thread
Why can't it be disclosed? Wasn't there any tumor? I had a tumor which filled almost half my colon. It was removed surgically and the colon was shortened by half. Thereafter went through 5 cycles of chemo. Left with after effects like numbness beneath my feet. People say the outlook is good. But one can't say when it will recur. It all depends on the stage of the cancer. If your father only had chemo, there may not have been any large tumor.View Thread
