I have a little good news. After only 2 treatments of chemo (5-FU, oxaplaitin, leuco, and avastin), I had had several days of no rectal bleeding and cramping. This is great news for me. I had had about a year of almost daily bleeding and cramping. (My symptoms were misdaignosed as hemmorhoids and IBS for several years).
So I am relieved physically by this and, of course, very encouraged that I have gotten these results after only 2 treatments !!!
I know I have a long way to go to being NED. I was diagnosed in Feb with rectal cancer with 2 liver mets. I haven't had surgery yet. But this small success is definitely encouraging.
