My ex-husband diagnosed 2 years ago with stage III colon cancer had radiation, chemo followed by surgery was diagnosed with liver mets in September. He began a course of 12 rounds of chemo every two weeks. The chemo included 5FU, Avastin and I believe FOLFOX. After 8 cycles he developed a rectal fistula which resulted in a huge abcess in his buttock. He was required to wait 4 to 5 weeks before he could have surgery. When he was able to get surgery the surgeons discovered the rectum had totally disintegrated and he was left with the colon a huge void and the anus. Has anyone ever heard of this happening with Avastin?
