It has been a year sine colon ca with esld. Was to weak for chemo. What now? Also found lymph node involvement.

Observatoon. I presume that you had a resection and had a positive node. Thus, you had stage 3 cancer. If your liver disease precluded treatment and was not from cancer, you still might be cured. Most of the information on the benefit of preventive chemo suggests that it should be done within 6-8 weeks. It sound like it was not safe and may not help.

Maybe not.

You may still beat it. I would suggest speaking with an oncologist to see if treatment now would be of benefit. Read more...
