How wonderful that your CEA is dropping. I am just about to start my 8th treatment of folfox - we are sisters! I sure know what you mean about getting tired of it -- I can't wait for my tx to end. But, it will. I hope you can find ways of taking care of yourself -- you have so much on your plate....

Great to hear your CEA is dropping- my husband will be starting another chemo regimine soon for met to liver after being stage 3...he will be on xeliri (folfiri with xeloda rather than 5FU?)..what have your side effects been like- he is dreading it (only just finished 7 months of 5FU/luecovorin in May....I pray for the day that there is a less toxic way of getting rid of cancer cells.

Great to hear the good news about your CEA level. I sure can relate to "getting so tired" of this.
Hang in there tough girl.

Hi Nettie,

How wonderful that your CEA is dropping. I would take that as a sign of the Folfiri working. Bless you for being a caretaker for your grandmother. What a wonderful and giving person you are to be thinking of others during your time of need.

God Bless and keep you, Nettie,

Kay
