It took 4 or 5 days for me to come to grips with with the terrible results of PET scan. Well, it's official... I remain inoperable. CEA climbed from 4 to 21 in a few months, one tumor in the liver grew, the others remain the same.... but the spread to the pelvic area and bones continues. a few spots on the acetabulum, pubic bone, left shoudler and now a spot noticed one of the lower left ribs. Crazy news. But, I've told myself I'm done crying about it... done complaining and bitching.... and instead its time to fight like hell. It's time to jump on the chemo as strong as possible, keep exsercising, keep eating well...
So, new chemo treatments begin this week. And, I'm looking forward to a very strong dose of this and i'm ready for any side effects needed to get on a drug that I know is working. I can take it and i'm ready for the fight.
but, if anyone has any insight as to what to expect or maybe if there are some special tips or ideas to share... share em please
FolFuri, Irinotecan (CPT11) + Avastin.
