In brief: Metastatic colon

cancer has poor prognosis.
However individual prognosis will depend on ovrral health, response and adverse effects of treatment and emotional reserve of the individual.

In brief: Intermediate.

I am sorry to learn that there was metastasis found in Liver and LN after the Colon Surgery.
After doing Total body survey with PET scan or CT scan of Abdomen and Chest and Brain Rx with Chemotherapy will be given. If there is no distant Metastasis , and Treatment is started early with good response; then the Prognosis can be good.
