As a new member, I appreciate all the suggestions and input others have on colon cancer treatments and aftercare

I’m so sorry to hear that.
How long did you take xeloda. I haven’t started it yet.

Thank you. Did you find xeloda worked?

I will have a PET scan every 3 months. Has anyone had experience with xeloda? My doctor said my progress is so good he wants me to try the oral chemo.
I appreciate your input.

I have had a similar experience. Stage 3 diagnosis in Jan. 2015. Chemo 5-fu for 6 months. Scan followed showing no cancer. Six months later a pet scan showed hot spots in clavicle, liver, abdomen and lung. The doctor I was seeing gave me 6 months to live.
I called Mayo and got in two weeks later. Treatment started in July 2016. It is now Dec. 2016 and pet scan shows no cancer. I’m told it will come back. Can this be cured?
