Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.
I am sorry to hear about it.
What are your questions?
Has doctor prescribed any specific treatment?
Unfortunately we do not have any investigation at this point of time which can detect microscopic metastasis. So before the surgery there may have not been any evidence of macroscopic spread to liver; as our medical imaging are not sensitive enough, so it did not show. But once it goes to size of 2-3 mm or more it starts showing on ultrasound and CT scan.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
A selective arterial chemotherapy, termed chemoembolization can get rid of liver metastasis. So you may discuss this possibility with your doctor / oncologist.
It is privilege assisting you.
