Angry Lung Cancer in the Colon

My dad was diagnoised with Stage 3 Non Small cell Lung cancer in October. He went through chemo, radiation and had his lung removed. In October the doctors told him his colon lit up but it was "only inflamed" and did not thing about it. Now 9 months later they have told my dad that he has something that is very uncommon. His lung cancer has wrapped around the outside of his colon, which is now stage 4 and has affected his lyphnodes in his abdomin. I have been researching online and it is saying he has a 3% survival rate. We are meeting with colon surgeones this week. Can anyone please give me advice as we have no faith in these doctors anymore, because they missed this nine months ago.
