I completed four treatments of Folfiri and Erbitux (treatment 4 was last Thursday). I'm managing to endure through the Erbitux Acne and other side-effects. So far CEA has dropped since starting these treatments. Tomorrow I go in for the MRI and CT follow-ups. The hope is that the tumors will have shrunk / stopped growing and that possibly these treatments will make me a viable candidate for liver resection surgery. My oncologist has already told me that even with great results I will still undergo several more Folfiri / Erbitux treatments before surgery...
I'm feeling stress and anxiety right now (along with side-effects from last Thursday's treatment). Sometimes this cancer stuff is a real pain!
Anyay, I know I'm not alone... Many of you have been here before and it is comforting to know that you know what I'm going through...
