  1. I don't want to post this but received the dreaded phone call 23 November 2018 with the confirmation. I have been diagnosed with colon cancer. They found a 10cm tumor Update: CT Marked the tumor as 14cm's. The cancer was found to have spread to some lymph nodes, my spleen and to my liver. Update 2: Primary Tumor was removed November 2019. Liver was ablated to remove the tumor in 2020. Update 3: Went in for a checkup and they found new tumors. Spread to my peritoneum. Surgeon removed as much as he could September 2020. Removed 40 cm of the small intestine and another 50 cm of my colon. Update 4: Still waiting for Momentum health (they will take you on a ride) to approve the needed chemo therapy. We moved onto a higher option, but have not received any feedback from Momentum health. 9 February 2021 Started chemo session (I stopped counting). It is a oral medication taken once per day. The worst thing that can happen is death... and a loss of all minerals in the body resulting in severe cramping. I need to do a blood test before the next session to see if my liver will be able to handle the chemo. 6 April 2021: Chemo treatment with Stivarga has been stopped. I had a sharp increase on my CA 19-9 count and had a severe drop in Potassium and liver functions, prompting intervention from the oncologist and the treatment team. As per request of a lot of members and other people... here is my BackaBuddy page https://www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/francois-marais
