Recovery After Liver Surgery

Hi there. My grandfather has a bowel cancer and liver metastases. He is having operation for removing the secondary liver tumors that have come from a primary cancer in the bowel. Is he going to be OK ? I'm very scared ... I'll appreciate your replays .

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No,it was just a palliative surgery.
He has stage 4 cancer and curative treatment is not possible in this stage.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
