1-2 yrs: If liver mets present then the aortocaval node should be considered to be part of overall treatment. First use of FOLFIERI chemo and then evaluation for resection should be contemplated. A single aortocarval node easily resected before chemo. If liver lesions treatable by resection or microwave ablation this should be tried. followed by chemoembolization if needed.
