    Awesome
    Great results, Pepe! Maybe it's a little bit of hubris, but sometimes I feel like we're getting a little bit of payback for those we've lost to this wretch of a disease.

    Fabulous news
    I know you have been through a nervous time waiting for results so congratulations on the outcome. I did find that combination held my tu,our pretty stable for a long while and am hearing of it being used more and more. I had little in the way of side effects too so quality of life is pretty- are you finding the same?

    Gives me an excuse to drink a toast tonight (not that I need an excuse with a period of forced sobriety coming up I am enjoying my wine collection at present and even have the blessing of my dietitian in doing so as she is ken I get in all the calories I can where ever they come from!).

    Thanks for making my day,
    Steve

    Well leena I never mentioned it here but it's been my 5 th
    Recurrence in nearly 4 years , so I need a rest ! It means that as soon I get NED If I achieve it want to stop for a while and then wait and see!
    I really need it , it's been my strategy in the last 3 recurrences and it's fine for me! I always will be able to start the fight if it appears again
    I'm still quite strong and will be more if I can achieve a few months or years who knows or resting!.
    PS. Craig be careful I'm going to catch your record! LOL. or I already did it?.LOL.

    (((Pepe))) hope you stay
    (((Pepe))) hope you stay NED forever!! I just wonder if a low dose of xeloda and celebrex would keep it away....I wish I had asked my onc. for xeloda months ago. Hopefully it's working.

    Hi Pepe
    I'm very glad of your response to this combination of chemo. Hoping this goes to the NED status.

    yes!
    That is great to hear!!!!!
    Smokeyjoe may have a good suggestion. I've read about that combination, too.

    I also wondered if you and your onc are still considering that vaccine trial when you get to a good point, hopefully after a few more rounds.

    Wow.....just happy for you.

    Great
    Good news, my husband just finished about same treatments along with surgery to go on bag. He had a lot of scar tissue from Radiation 4 years ago. His CEA was 47 now 1.9 and when they put him on bag all biopsies were negative for live cancer. Right now he is just trying to put on weight.

    Hi Janie! Not at all despite it seems is working
    Quite well you must have active tumours , and once you are Ned you are not admitted also is a random trial so you have to think in it twice! LOL.
