Update on my wife

The irinotecan regime, Xeliri, failed, CEA started going up on treatment 6 and by treatment 8 had doubled. Scan shows more liver involvement. Onc is going to try Xelox, as the oxy worked the first time. She knows what NED is, just never heard it. Her onc said from the beginning this was palliative, not curative, so we've known since day one it was chemo for life.

She is not eligible for Erbitux/Vectibix, KRAS mutant.

Good luck on the irinotecan Buzz. Ride it as long as it works.

Thank you for the update. Sorry to hear that the one treatment plan didn't help, but glad to hear the docs are trying something else.

Praying that this one does the trick.

Best to both you and the wife.

Marie who loves kitties

I don't have experience with xelox.
Praying it will do well for her.
Wishing you both the best.

New plan. No chemo. Going to do an embolization on the liver.

My husband had embolization on Dec 28th... we are waiting for liver resection. It really went well though, he was tired for a couple of days but is spry as a spring chicken these days. :)
