I started my battle on Halloween 2011. That was over 700 days ago (nearly two years). Four surgeries, twenty-two radiation treatments, eleven treatments of FOLFOX and Oxaliplatin, twelve treatments of FOLFIRI and Erbitux, and countless scans later I finally have a legitimate shot at a FULL REMISSION! Praise and Glory be to God!


My next step: Scans on 10/21 (CT Scan, PET Scan, MRI of Liver). If scans show NED then my Onc will monitor CEA levels monthly and scans every two or three months.


I am joyfull but I have to admit that I am also very cautious with my emotions. I don't want to fly too high only to come crashing back into a low. But I am optimistic and hopeful! I know that God has a plan for me and whatever the plan; it is perfect. I just wish I knew the ending of the plan. :-)


God Bless you all and thank you for your support and advice (to me and to each other)!!!


Happy Friday!

I am praying for you that your scans are all clear. I know you have been through hell and back with your treatments. I am extremly happy to hear anyone who has gone through this battle have a clear scan. Good luck to you phil.

That's awesome Phil. What a long tough battle that you endured. Your are wise not to let your emotions get to high. I try to approach a clean scan the same way although we all do deserve to celebrate the good news.
