I just saw the liver surgeon this morning, I am off of chemo for the next 5 weeks, and then off to surgery.
I am very excited, just a few weeks ago I quit the chemo because it was hurting my liver (blood results) and would have rathered died from slow cancer then quicker liver failure, onc talked me back on it, took a PT/CT scan, the tumor that had a SUV of gross metabolic activity of 23.3 and was 3 cm's has completely resolved (gone), two liver tuMors hav also disappeared, and the remaining two have shrunk and metabolic SUV activity has ceased. Same with lungs, still an active two of them in my thorax, but they have shrunk and activity has decreased remarkably.
so a glorious 5 weeks of NO chemo!!
Happy dance time, Again!
