    Thanks for your response. We are leaning towards surgery too. Surgen said he will discuss with oncologist and let us know.

Just want to hear from fellow patients and care givers Thanks and s...

                Hi, I am also new here with ec that metastased to liver. I went to oncologist and he recommended chemo to start soon.

So did you start the chemo and how is it coming. I pray for you and please give us updates. To all th...
