    Recurrent Colon Cancer with liver metastasis


    My mother (45 years) is a colon cancer with liver mets. diagnosed 2.5 years ago, Since than she has received chemotherapy followed by surgery and post surgery chemotherapy.

    Now the cancer is spread to peritoneal area, which reads soft tissue deposits.
    So far, she has took following treatments :

    3 cycle FOLFOX-4
    4 cycle FOLFERI + Avastin
    8 cycle CAPOX (capecitabine + Oxaliplatin)
    Ascending colon hemicolectomy + small liver resection
    3 cycle of irenocam + oxaliplatin
    1 cycle of 5 FU
    2 cycle of capecitabine

    Now as per todays report her CEA is 2500. and now she has Ascites and has lot of pain in back and her stomach is bloated.

    We have already done the ascites tapping 4 times. Its getting filled up again.

    Can anyone suggest any further treatment options? Or has anyone been through similar situations?
