What is the life span of a stage 4 colon cancer patient?
Unfortunately,reduced compared to your age mates!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this stage 4 cancer of the colon. It is truly a condition that would be very difficult for us to talk of a complete cure even after surgery and several chemotherapy sessions. What am comforted by is the willingness of your doctors to put together all the available means of treatment to help get the best out of this condition despite the difficult nature of this disease.
Your days are not as many as for many of your same age. However, we cannot change the fact that you have a stage 4 cancer. What we can rather work on is to provide the best up to date evidence practices for best possible outcomes. We promise you our unfailing support and availability to walk this journey with you making sure the process is a lot less stressful.
For now, work with your doctors. Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best possible outcome. Though a very difficult condition, our determination, commitment and desire to see you have an acceptable quality of life all through the treatment process and beyond would guide us to great results.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and please do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications should need be. Remember, you will never walk alone all through this difficult journey!
