Many of you know from previous posts that I am a six year survivor and am now recovering from my third liver resection. This time it was the entire right lobe and a piec of my diaphram where the tumor came out of the live and attached to my diaphram. What a surprise that was. Well I went back to see my surgeon and he just told me for the first time that he removed a soft tissue mass from my abdominal wall which didn't show up on the scan since it was soft tissue. He wa sure it was benign since it was soft but it turned out to be cancer.
Any way to make a long story short I went to see new oncologist. it was time for a change after 6 years. He said that since it spread outside of the liver he wants me to do 12 months of FOLFIRI plus Vectibix which I understand works the same as Erbitux. What are your experiences with Vectix/Erbitux. Does everyone get the rash and if so how bad is it.
