Hi. My partner is due a hemicolectomy on 4thMay after Gcc was found in his appendix. Under the net team at the royal Liverpool but only seen so far by gastro cons who will do the op My OH is worried that the hemi will be a waste of time and reduce his quality of life for no reason as there seems to be some views that a hemi does nothing for a survival rate. Only a CT scan so far done which says no spread to liver but don’t know the results of lung scan yet. Haven’t seen anyone else to discuss worries. On our holiday in Spain at the moment. OH may decide against hemi and hope surveillance may be a better way. Advice please?

Hi, my husband had a right hemi in december 2006, he was not seen by an expert till 2010, BIG mistake, although he had mets at time of diagnosis, he had multiple mets by the time we saw an expert. Why is he having the hemi. Can he have Ga 68 before he goes any further and see an expert. My husbands multiple mets did not show up on Mri, ct or octreoscan. We are english but are lucky enough to have really good centres now. he has f218 dopa pet scans now. has he had all the blood work and urine tests done?
He’s having a hemi as a precaution as goblet cells found in the appendix tumour. We are under a net specialist but won’t be seen until after hemi for follow up. No idea if bloods etc taken and no idea about scans . Only had a scan of the chest and lower cts that showed no spread.Gastro cons says she wants to see the lymph nodes Having a preop on Thursday then in on Friday for the hemi.
