Well, Novalis is off the table for a while. I had a pet/ct in march. It showed two liver tumors and two rt lung tumors. They started prepping me for Novalis by doing a biphasic liver study and high def ct. The ct showed that I still had several small scattered tumors throughout both lungs. The Radiologist said he wanted to delay treatment until some of those things clear up.

That sounds like bad news but there is some positive. Until last week I haven't taken any chemo since Feb. By all accounts my cancer has been stable for many months without chemo. I haven't taken Avastin since mid Dec. I was approved for Abraxane, which I was planning on taking after Novalis.

    Stable
    Is a good thing. I am glad you have a new plan and it sounds like it will get you to your Novalis treatment. I always thought you could RFA those liver and lung tumors. Best of luck!
