What can be expected from colon cancer last stages?


Answer by  Bubba49 (177)

There can be pain from obstruction of the bowel flow and resulting colonic distention. If the primary symptom is from liver spread, there can be jaundice.

Last stages involve abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, back pain, nausea, vomiting and excessive sleeping from all the pain medicines. The appetite is usually surpressed and you don't want anything to eat as it makes you sick and hurt more. Being cold to the touch on the arms and legs also signifies decreased blood flow.

This is the stage of colon cancer that is considered almost incurable. This is the time where the cancer has spread to surrounding lymph nodes.


Answer by  jaimesgirl (1055)

Persons suffering through the final stages of colon cancer often have problems with blood in their stools or frequent lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding. They usually lose their appetite and find themselves unable to eat or keep food down. Nausea and vomiting is often a problem, as well as dehydration. This can sometimes be quite painful.
