I saw my Oncologist earlier today, and he validated what I had already heard. No visible signs of any tumors from the CT scan. He also thinks that since the large tumors melted away, he is confident that the tiny ones in my nodes in Mediastynum are most likely gone also. Due to the severe side effects from the 5FU, he is ceasing the 96 hr. infusions. He is confident it is either the Carboplatin and or the Erbitux that is responsible for the tumors being destroyed. So the plan is as long as the study drugs are working, I will continue on the study and also remain on a once weekly dose of Erbitux for as long as it keeps working. He said I am one of a few who have gone from tumors the size of acorns to nothing in 12 weeks.

I am blessed with this news, and pray for the same result with all of my CSN friends / warriors.
