good PET results (bone mets, xeliri + Avastin)

Got the results of my most recent PET scan. Good news! After 8 cycles of Xeliri + Avastin, my bone mets are continuing to shrink and to show lower uptake. Yea! I had positive results after 4 scans and it is good to see the trend continuing. Now I will do another 4 cycles and then have another scan.

Haven't lost all my hair yet (CPT-11) but it's definitely going....sigh.....

My onc says I am an usual case because I have bone mets but no "visceral" involvement (liver, lungs).

My CEA continues to be elevated, in spite of the reduction in mets - which is a bit of concern. But, hey -- I'm just concentrating on the positive right now!

He reduced my dose last cycle and I had no acute diarrhea or colic. I'm going back to full dosage this cycle. We'll see what happens!

Love,
Tara

That's wonderful news, Tara!! There's nothing that gives us the warm fuzzy feelings and motivation to conquer the world than good results after treatments and scans. Continue the good work, which in turn, verifies our theory that one can live with cancer and not die from it :) No matter where it's spread to... once you get it under control, then life is good :)
