Hi, I am new to the group although not new to cancer. I have been a caregiver to my husband Hunt for one year. He was dx with stage 4, 17 out of 18 lymph nodes dieased, mets to liver. On campostar for 6 months, was clear for 45 days. Testing proved it was back, CEA reading 24.9 with liver spots. He has not been sick, no hair loss, no weight lost, but is very very tired. We are not receiving any positive news. The oc said about 17 months and it has been a year now. His faith in God and healing powers are very strong and he says he will beat this. He is very positive, never complains. Every 10 days he is on 55 hours of continuous chemo - oxaliplatin, 5fu. He has completed 5 treatments of this. He says it will be gone on the next scan. Has anyone had positive results with oxaliplatin. We have not talked to anyone on this. This web site is a blessing. Although I have not been sending messages, I have read lots of these message. You are a wonderful group of people. God Bless each and everyone of you.
