There was a cancellation in the Onc. office so, I was able to get in today to see my results. The cancer that was in by belly is gone! the cancer in my liver is mixed 2 were smaller and 2 were larger, all of which were larger and smaller by just a little. The Oncologist seem to be happy with these results. He did say that the liver nodules could be dieing off but not shrinking as of yet. I will have 2 more chemo treatments and then repeat the ct and have a pet scan. He mentioned that if they are shrinking they could eventually do an RFA or direct the chemo into the liver only.If not we would change the treatment, drop the oxi and add c-11 or something like that, You know it's hard to remember everything when you are terrified!! I do have it recorded on my husbands blckberry. Thanks for all of the prayers and keep them coming. God Bless, Patti

It sounds good that your onc was happy with your scan. You're wise to record things as we have all walked out of a drs office and tried to put together what we heard.
I'll say a prayer for you right now.

So happy that your results were so positive. I just had a scan of my kidneys and all is good there, but there is a spot on my right lung...size of two periods (..) so back I go in November to have my lungs scanned. Hope my next results are cheery like yours.

My prayers continue for you!

Hugs, Sandi

I don't know what happened...but this one flew by me and I missed it.

I'm so glad that you rec'd good news....will keep you going, huh?

Maybe a switch over to the CPT-11 will be good...known as Camptosar or Inrontecan too.

And RFA will be ok too...we'll talk about that when you get to that.

Very positive news, I'm thrilled for you...hoping and praying for you as always.

Sorry I'm late...hit me with a PM next time...I'm always wondering how ya' doing.

Craig :)

Hi Patti,

I missed this post somehow until today, which is why I'm not replying until 5 days later. I'm glad to hear of your good news and I'll continue to pray for you for the rest of the nodes to shrink and/or disappear! You mentioned possibly changing to "cp-11"- I think it's actually CPT-11, which is also called Camptosar or irinotecan. I'm on that right now, so let me know if you have any questions when/if you change over to it.

You take care-

Hey Lisa, thanks for replying to my post, we did take it as good noew however not the perfect news. I am praying that the chemo will start working on the liver. Will know after two more treatments. How is CPT-11? do you lose your hairwith this one? I have kept my hair with the Folfox. Please let me know what to expect, don't know for sure if we will change will know in about 4 weeks. Any info would be appreciated. God Bless, Patti
