Hey all, just wanted to give you all an update on Jason. He had his 2nd chemo treatment Wednesday, took the pump back today. He is doing remarkably well, he is just very tired today. So far he hasn't had any nausea, very little sensitivity to cold things (he carries a mug of something with ice all the time) his appetite has been pretty good so far, so we feel very blessed. As a matter of fact, right after his first treatment he was able to eat a lot more than he was able to prior to the treatment. He told the dr. that if he didn't know better he would think the chemo was already shrinking the tumor & the dr's response was "I can tell you this, that stuff can work DAMN FAST!" So....it may be working already, I pray so anyway. I got a copy of his medical records which gives a diagnoses of "Nonresectable carcinoma of the transverse colon near the hepatic flexure, which extends into the retroperitoneum & into the duodenum." It also mentions the abnormality in the liver, but the dr. said he is confident the chemo will get rid of that right away. It also states that the goal is to shrink the tumor enough to be able to remove it at a later time. The tumor measured 11.9 x 12.7 cm. I'm not that good with measurements, & although I have a measuring tape, I'm afraid to even see how big it is. So, if anyone here has or had the same thing I would love to hear your story. It all still seems like a bad dream. I hope all of you are doing well. ((((HUGS)))) Kris OH! how could I forget this!.....he has also had the STUPID HICCUPS again like he did for 6 days after his surgery....UGHHH!
