Colon Cancer

Rectal Cancer



My mother was diagnosed with rectal cancer in Jan of 2011, stage 4. She has done Zyloda and now they say it`s not working.  She doesn`t want to do IV therapy. I know with it she will not survive.  How rapid does the disease grow and how long does she have. 


It all depends on how spread out or aggressive the disease is. Without therapy the average is 6 to 12 months.
