Lonsurf and Y-90 Treatment
Hi All, haven't been around for a bit,I just wanted to have everything in line before I said anything. First off almost 2 cycles of Lonsurf done. No adverse side effects just a little tired at times but have to keep moving or nothing gets done. I should be on Avastian with the Lonsurf but they are holding back for now because of my upcoming treatment. I had 2 mappings done for the Y-90 Radioembolization of the tumor on my liver. The radioembolization should take place in about 2 weeks. Feeling pretty good over all. I'm hoping this next phase of treatment goes well and offers some needed positive results for awhile. Wishing all of you well and as always you are forever in my prayers. Tom
I am happy to hear that you are doing well on the Lonsurf, with little side effects. That is always good news.
Good luck with your upcoming Y-90. That was one of my options, but we went with Ablation instead.
Keep us updated.
Thanks Tru, looking foward to getting some of this stuff behind me. I have been very lucky as to anything they throw at me treatment wise. BTW do you know how Kim is doing? The two of you were my first friends when I feel onto this site. Tom1

I belive Kim is fine, as she has been popping on and off the forum. She will be touched to hear taht you are asking after her.
Glad to hear
Glad to hear that Lonsurfs side effects are not that bad for you. Lets hope it actually has an effect.
My dad unfortunately goes through nausea, runny nose, cold symptoms. I felt stupid to call the oncologist to ask what to do cause we never had nausea as a side effect before, just tiredness. But if it helps, its all worth it.
Good luck for your treatment and positive news. I know how it is and we definetely need some positivity on this board. Has been a nightmare of bad news for a while here...0
Our oncologist is working on
Our oncologist is working on setting up the Y90 treatment for Pam. It is a lot of waiting. If you post more sbout your experience I will most certainly read it. We wish you the greatest successes with your treatments.
I, too am on Lonsurf plus Avastin
But the Avastin has been held as I've had procedures, including a second kyphoplasty this Thursday. Side effects from Lonsurf (one 2-week session) have been minimal. I'm now on my 2 off weeks. Here's hoping it's effective for both of us.
Tom: We still havent heard
Tom: We still havent heard from Radiology. Our oncologist is not happy about it and has made several calls. We did learn that the radiologist said that the tumors are such that he can do the procedure. Doc told us we should get a call this week. I'm sure ours will be a while.
Best of luck with yours.
I Was On Lonsurf
It kept me stable for four months. After 4 months it actually shrunk my cancer. Kept things stable then. After a year, things started growing. The general rule of thumb seems to a treatment works for a year or so, before moving onto the next one. Of course there are many outliers who do better. I seem to be things last a year before moving onto the next thing. Almost 60 rounds of chemo and counting. LOL0
