Spleen embolisation

Vickilg Member Posts: 281

My spleen embolisation was successful.   Platelets were up to 630 so I was able to get full dose of irrotecan.  Had to skip one treatment while I was recovering. CEA doubled   I was hoping for a chemo break.  I've been doing this so long but guess that is not going to happen now.
