As some of you may remember, I started to have ascites build-up due to my peritoneal tumors. They took off 1.7L about 2 months ago and then 3L one month ago. Well, I went in yesterday after another month and there was too little fluid to try and remove. This very likely means the folfiri is controlling the peritoneal tumors. Still have 4-5 weeks before a CT scan but this is welcome news. The best part is that I'm only taking a 60% dose of irinotecan and still getting results. I'm also only getting an 80% dose of 5FU right now. I'm also on avastin but at full dose. Just wanted to post some good news for a change.
