Well, it was a nice break.
This is my first posting so here's my quick story, Dx Stage IV in May 2008, colon resection, FOLFOX, liver resection, short NED time until spots returned in lungs, then FOLFIRI, a little more NED time, lung spots persistent, tried FOLFOX again but had to drop the Oxaliplatin due to reactions. Lung spots weren't growing, but not shrinking either so I opted to try surgery, bi-lateral VATS, 2 days apart in January 2012. Seem to be permanently stuck with chemobrain and neuropathy. Anyway, new spot showed up in left lung and is apparently in the lung lining also. We're going back to FOLFIRI with Zaltrap (I previously had avastin).
Anyway, with this latest turn of events, I'm trying to stay upbeat, but I have to wonder how many times I can do this. Any good words from some other survivors would be welcome.
