I had surgery for rectal cancer in 2002, followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Later, the cancer metastasized to my bones. I completed a chemotherapy regimen in December 2004, and the only treatment I have had since is a monthly infusion of Aredia (pamidronate). I am doing quite well. Would you say that I am in stage IV of rectal cancer?
Yes. Patients with metastatic disease to the bone are stage IV, but it is unusual for colon cancer to go to the bones exclusively. Treatment with Aredia is reasonable, although it has not proven to be of benefit in colon cancer patients. For this reason, continued close observation is recommended.
