Well, yesterday morning I get the call from my doctor, hoping to hear it was gone, I was told there is still activity and the remaining lesions on your liver have grown slightly...the largest was 1.7cm, now its 1.9cm...Boy, not what I wanted to hear and yesterday was really really tough...8 rounds of FOLFOX, 95% gone....5 treatments of Irinotecan and Erbitux and its grown...FVCK!!! Monday I am to start taking Xeloda, 1500mg morning and 1500mg at night and Avastin every other week...I gotta get rid of this crap!
Is this normal? to do so well, then have a setback? Is the last 5% the hardest?
I'm going fight or die trying, but its really scary shit...
Anyone on Xeloda and Avastin? Side-effects? I know everyone is different...that Erbitux was pretty tough, so was the Oxaliplatin...My doctor says most people tolerate the Xeloda and Avastin pretty well, but thats what he said about Erbitux and that was a nightmare for me...
