Two weeks ago my oncologist for the Esphageal Cancer told me that my tumor markers dropped from 800 to 76. She wanted me to meet with my Eye Oncologist to see if the tumor in my left eye was still there. I told her my eyesight was fully restored and I thought it was gone. Dr. Sighn checked my eye with his magical eye peice and said he believed the tumor was gone. They then performed and Ultra Sound and took pictures of the inner eye and confirmed that it was gone.
They believe the tumor in my esophagas is also gone but I won't know until I get scoped. I just had a C.T. Scan and there were no other met sights that they could observe. I guess a pet scan is next. I have started my fourth round of chemo and she plans on doing six rounds and then some sort of a maintainence round after that. Needless to say we are elated but it's hard to think this could be over as it's been a hell of a roller coaster ride. I know you are going to ask what chemo I am taking so I will spell it the best I can. Oxaliplatin, Captcitabine (aka Xeloda Pill form for 14 days)and Oxaliplatin. As I told you folks a while back the first Oncologist that I went to was going to treat me for lung cancer and do not one more test. I dumped him and leared about the E.C. which they could not find. Anyway, I am still running for Sheriff and working. The Chemo has had no effect other that dry mouth and I have lost half of my hair. I am praying that this goes away for good. Also I will keep all of you in my prayers.
