I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in August 2005. I had a colon resection, followed by seven months of Xeloda (capecitabine), Avastin (bevacizumab) and oxaliplatin. I had a liver resection removing all of the right lobe and part of the left in May 2006. All cancer was removed from my liver, per my surgeon. I will be following up with another four months of chemo as a preventive measure. My CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen, a blood test for recurrence) is now at 0.5 prior to starting back on chemo. Is it really possible that a stage IV can be cured, or am I just being too optimistic that I may beat this? I am 45 years old with no family history of this disease.

Patients who have a limited amount of disease with their stage IV colon cancer, which can be resected surgically, may live longer than patients who have more diffuse disease.  In rare cases, a cure may be even achieved.  If you have been lucky enough to have disease that was limited and resectable, there is a chance that you may have been cured. It’s important, however, to have close follow-up with your oncologist.
