Stage 4 colon cancer

Am new to this venue. Am looking for scientifically based answers. Someone close to me was diagnosed 15 months ago with stage 4 colon cancer. Recent CTscan showed minimal growth in colon and liver cancer, a little growth in a left lung nodule, and a new nodule (9mm) in rt lung. There has also been a significant increase in acitis. Is colon cancer typically slow growing? What is the significance of increased acitis? Are there ways to relieve the fluid in the belly without it returning in a few days? What time frame is realistic for the life of this person? I don't mean to offend anyone, but am not looking for stories of others' experiences. Would appreciate input from the medical community. If this is not the right venue for what I'm seeking, someone please let me know. Thank you. Pat M. patminehan@comcast.net
