    Really worried! Please help! Husband mets have come back third time

    Hi all
    My husband was dx in Oct 2014 with stage 4 colon cancer with mets in his lungs, he was only 40!! to cut a long story short he gas has various surgeries to lungs and bowel and chemos! He has recently had his mets come back again in his liver and lungs! He has been offered Lonsurf and is starting next week. I have been reading stuff about lonsurf and it doesn't look that great, with people generally not having any good results.
    Does anyone know anyone or has personal experience of lonsurf? At the mo I am worried he will be gone within the next year.
    Thanks
    Sharon

    Hi Sharon, I am also a Sharon. I'm sorry I don't have much information on lonsurf as my husband passed away 5 yrs ago. But I'm sure someone will come on here with information for you soon. Just wanted to let you know that we care and hoping for the very best. Sharon a.k.a. mojo

    Sharon. Are you in the US? You need to go for a second opinion at a big teaching hospital or NCI cancer center (if the the US).
    He needs to do the genomic testing of the tumor to find out if his cancer is MSI or MSS (or has he done that already). There are trials in the US for the CRC including many immunotherapy trials. Here is the link to all immunotherapy trials for RCR http://www.cancerresearch.org/cancer...orectal-cancer.

    Longsurf looks fine to me in terms that it starves cancer cells of DNA building blocks, so cancer cells cannot build their daughter cells. I sent you a PM.

    No we are in the UK and lonsurf is pretty new here. He did have genetic testing to confirm the Kras gene, I can't remember if he had it or not, we are having a meeting with the oncologist on Monday so hoping we can get a few more answers regarding the treatment and what other options there may be if the lonsurf doesn't work x

    Hubby did Lonsurf. He was so sick after taking it, they had to admit him to the hospital. He then tried a lower dose (1/2 of does taken before) and got as sick and had to be hospitalized again. So many people seem to benefit from it. I hope your husband responds well to it. I have read that some people have and it is suppose to be great if you can tolerate it. Thoughts and prayers for you.
    Hubby diagnosed in 2005 with Stage IV, January...Journey on this road has had some major obstacles ..... God continues to help us endure each one.... enjoying life and doing as much as possible!
