My husband age 52 (Stage IV Colon Cancer spread to liver which is 50%+ involved) has gone through the standard chemo (5FU, Lecovorin and Irinotecan) for approximately 8 months. His cancer started growing again and they did a resection and one chemoembolization. They are talking about putting him on Oxaliplatin. I'd really like to have any information anyone has. Our Oncologist can't get it since it has not been FDA approved but it sounds like that will happen in the next 6 months or so. We are near the University of Washington and hopefully they will be able to administer it. I'm also concerned that our insurance won't cover it. Any help would be appreciated.
