Few of you know ,last month,that my dad was having avastin and folfiri and had a perforation in GI and got operated recently for a locally recurrent rectal tumor..its been 5 years since last diagnoses..
Just today we got a PET and MRI that showed 0 evidence of disease...we were both shocked and happy...how could it be..
can avastin really cure you 100%-no noticable cells with cancer were found...
Doctors think its Avastin but he was never really tested with confirmed biopsy before...
biopsy showed mucinous neoplasm..and FNAC showed inflammation
PET sjhowed lit up areas but noting really confirmed existence of cancer.
Could it be he was treated without confirming cancer
Could he have had cancer and now it has vanished due to avastin?
I want to let people know through this forum to do triple checks befiore confiming diagnoses and also want to knwo efficacy of avastin...
