Prognosis: Prognosis is determined at time of diagnosis/treatment. Seems cancer is/was stage 4, which has a shorter prognosis than stage 1. If stage 4 is NEW, newly discovered liver metastasis, then prognosis will be negatively impacted compared to a year ago. Regardless of prognosis, talk with your docs. Take friend/family with you to appointments to help with understanding. Treatments exist. Be well.
