When I was first diagnosed the primary tumor in my colon was about 2.5cm, there also seemed to be some complication with the surrounding area/tissues. There were several swollen lymp nodes and the colon cancer had metatisised into my liver. The liver showed three cancerous leasions about a cm in size, two on one lobe and one on the other, so a liver resection was outta the question. As we all know cancer can be so unpredictable. Heres the latest, this scan reconfirmed what the last CT Scan showed, the three leasions on my liver are no longer there, my liver looks healthy and happy. There is also no evidence of cancer in my lymp nodes. The area surrounding the primary tumor in my colon looks less cluttered than before, and the primary tumor has shrunk to a little less that 2.o cm. This is great news, we couldnt be happier:o) So as of today I have cancer in my colon, nowhere else
Up to this point I have received 7 cycles of 5fu,lucavorin, and oxilaplatin, along with some steroid and magnesium and calcuim.
I'll keep you posted...
