I thought I was not anxious about my scan on Wed. But here I am, wide awake at 5 am tossing and turning. I realized I haven't had a scan since my pre liver resection scan that didn't have some twist of a new tumor. This one is to see if the erbutix and irinotecan has worked after the first four rounds. I asked how they would be able to tell since there must have been growth during the 6 weeks after my last scan until they started treating me. I have a face and scalp full of pimples, and lost almost all of my hair, so this will really suck if didn't at least halt the growth. I have hope that I will be that one in a million who does so well on these drugs that I can eventually get to NED just from chemo.

    Scans are always a little (allot) worrying

    Wishing you the best, and hope you see the meds working wonders, and not just damaging your hair and face.

    I'm counting the days till my baseline scan after surgery and chemo.  They thought it was in my lungs and liver, and then thought maybe not and had surgery.  So I understand your nervous.   White light and prayers and good thoughts coming your way
