Curtis' radiation oncologist called today. They have their weekly meetings on Tuesdays with his whole team and had some new information. Some of his lymph nodes that are affected are high up in his abdomen. Because they are so far away from the original cancer source (rectum and colon), the lymph nodes are considered metastasized. Curtis is officially a stage 4. They are not concerned about his liver, they said the CT scan does not look like it has spread there. I am not sure if this new staging will affect treatment, we will talk with them more tomorrow.
