Signet cell

by MaureenT - September 11 at 6:39 PM

My grandson has been diagnosed with stage 4 signet cell cancer found on his colon. He was operated on June 2019, a mass as big as a fist perforated his colon, and they removed the mass. It was signet cell. They operated again 3 days after first operation, and removed a foot of his colon and part of his rectum. It had seeded. He now is in chemo treatment every 2 weeks through Dec. The doctor says best not to ask questions. ????? I would like to know his prognosis, but Doctor is reluctant to say. My grandson feels great—no effects from chemo at all. He believes he will be cancer free after treatment..... very positive. Any info would help.... Maureen T
My grandson (19 yrs old) had sever pain in abdomen, went to emergency at hospital June 25. They operated, as it showed perforated colon. When they went in, they found a mass as big as a fist. They removed it, and sent to pathology. Signet cell. Oncologist suggested they re-enter for second surgery in 3 days time, where they removed one foot of colon ( it had seeded) and part of his rectum. Upon releases from hospital, he started chemo, every two weeks. He is going on 5 treatments so far, will go through December. He is stage 4. The doctor told us it is best not to ask questions! I have so many!! My grandson has had no reaction, or rather, no ill effects from Chemo so far. He feels good. He also thinks when treatment is over.....he will be cancer free. His mom just finished treatment for breast cancer, and is now cancer free. He has not looked into signet cell. I have, and it scares me. 12 of 15 lymph nodes showed cancer. They said they do not see it has spread. It does not help when the doctor discouraged questions. Anyone have suggestions as to what we should request be done?? I am at a loss. MaureenT
