Hello...my son is 22 and was diagnosed with colon cancer in may of 2016. He did 8 rounds of folfox and could no longer tolerate it. The cancer was gone at this time. It has since returned. Our scans on 23june 2017 showed over10 spots on his liver. We started folfiri, but after the 3rd dose he became very sick and hasn’t had any treatment since the middle of July. He also has a genetic lung disease...cystic fibrosis. He is currently in the hospital for dehydration and has absolutely no appetite. He might drink a boost and eat a yogurt. Can anyone give me some hope? Have any of you experienced this sort of appetite loss and what can I do to increase it?

Try Cannabis it opens up your appetite and helps with Nausea. I also have read many success stories that kills cancer cells.

I too have cystic fibrosis and was just diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer with 3 lymph nodes involved. What was the diagnosis of your son? What stage and how many lymph nodes were affected?

I have recently read about a strong connection between colon cancer and cystic fibrosis especially among men. As if we dont have enough to deal with. I for sure will keep you and your son in my prayers. Does he ever try to drink scandishake for weight gain? It helps me a lot. My name is Daniel. What is your son’s name may i ask?
