Let's remember present situation : I have got a recurrence in my liver 3cm. and 7 nodes affected in retroperitoneal lining also small.
Plan was to try to stop it or better shrink it with chemo to can radiate the nodes and then operate liver met and nodes but only if thy shrunk.Well everything happened so fast!.Yesterday had my first two months control at 9 pm ,also today had a Radio simulation at 9 am,and a PET which was ordered by radiologist as he prefers to work with a PET instead of a SCAN,Before that at 8 am, already had blood work, finally had an appointment with Onc to check all these results at 2 pm. Here is the result for this bunch of tests:San was not arrived, Boold work perfect, PET, and here comes the surprise,no evidence of cancer activity in nodes nor in liver!!!!!!!! no lightning at all!, yeahhhhh, it does not mean I'm cancer free but activity has decreased as much that PET can't even recognize ,doc was not even concerned about Scan results! he said with CEA dropping and PET results showing nothing, Tumors must be stopped or shrunk for sure, this afternoon he will have the scan, but told me not to wary at all!.So we continue with the plan, Stop folfiri right now, and start to radiate in two weeks, surgery before end of the year!.By the way I was so happy that have forgotten to ask my CEA but who cares!.
Hugs!
****************************************UPDATE**************************************************************************************************************************Well........,As you know l got awesome news With PET results, and as you know I was told by my Onc that despite PET show no activity ,SCanner probably still wuold show us A shrinkage of tumor an lynph nodes , or at least a non progression of the disease , Well , here it goes the Scan result.....:

I've had a good couple of days, thanks for asking! I'm looking forward (?!) to beginning the prep tomorrow, since that's a day closer to the scope. I am SOOOO hoping the scope will bring some answers, no matter that I might not want the answer that comes.
