First let me apoligise for not posting . After 4 treatments of folfiri my cea was still rising. I had a pet/cat two weeks ago , which showed that my liver mets have increased in size and number . My Onc gave me two options . Cpt11/ Eribitux . Or Sir Spheres treatment . We have decided to go with the Sir Spheres . I met with the Dr. yesterday to go over everything . I will have the first part of the treatment on Dec 27th . This is to just go in though the groin and inject contrast to get a good look at the viens and block off viens that don't go to the liver to make sure the beads don't go elsewhere . Then if all go's well I will have the beads injected the first week of Jan (yikes) Happy new year to me . I am pretty scared , But have heard and read good things about this treatment . Please say a little Prayer for me . I sure hope this works . My love to all .
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of you .
Take Care and God Bless .
Debra

Debra,

I have been thinking about you and getting worried. I misplaced your phone number - give me a call or email me your number - would like to talk with you.

Hey there,
Can you explain "Sir Spheres" and why you chose it over Erbitux?

You've been added to my prayer list.

I'm saying prayers for you and I think of you everyday. You will have to be our spokes person for this Sir Spheres and let us know what that is all about. Thoughts and prayers are your way. Sue
