MRI and CT Tomorrow

I completed four treatments of Folfiri and Erbitux (treatment 4 was last Thursday). I'm managing to endure through the Erbitux Acne and other side-effects. So far CEA has dropped since starting these treatments. Tomorrow I go in for the MRI and CT follow-ups. The hope is that the tumors will have shrunk / stopped growing and that possibly these treatments will make me a viable candidate for liver resection surgery. My oncologist has already told me that even with great results I will still undergo several more Folfiri / Erbitux treatments before surgery...

I'm feeling stress and anxiety right now (along with side-effects from last Thursday's treatment). Sometimes this cancer stuff is a real pain!

Anyay, I know I'm not alone... Many of you have been here before and it is comforting to know that you know what I'm going through...

Figners Crossed in Michigan,

Phil

    oh sending you the best of luck for tomorrow Phil....I really really hope you can see some shrinkage and get on with surgery in the near future.  You poor thing.....that acne just sounds like the worst.......never had that drug.  .....but I have had two liver resections so I am right here when your time comes.  Phil my cottage is up near Sault STE. Marie in Canada.....we are on a teeny island and I can see the light of Detour Michigan easily.....Wondering if you still have snow? we are just swamped......

    okay all the very best with toes crossed for tomorrow....
