Hey all, sorry I haven't been on here in a while, just been busy & having some shoulder issues. Anyway, Jason got his 8th chemo treatment this past Wednesday, the 2nd one that included the Irinotecan (instead of Oxaliplatin) & he has been tolerating it well so far. He is still on the 5-FU, Leucovorin, Avastin, & all the other anti-nausea meds, Benadryl, & Tylenol that they give him before his treatment. We're hopeful that this new combo will take care of the liver mets & continue working on the liver tumor. Oh & I forgot to mention that his blood levels have been good (his WBC have stayed up) so he isn't having to get the Neulasta(?) shot so far, hoping that will continue! I hope this finds all of you doing well! You're all in my prayers & ask that you will keep Jason in yours. =) ((HUGS))) Kris

We are hopeful that the new chemo will shrink the tumors enough for him to have surgery, but the largest one is against his inferior vena cava, so at this time surgery isn't possible....where were yours located? close to any major vessels, arteries, etc.?
