Well today was the day that I feared for a long, long time. I saw my onc. The scan was not good to say the least. I have 12 new nodules in my lungs. a spot on my spleen. A spot on my abdominal wall. it appears that there might be more tumor hidden behind what they took out of my chest wall back in September. The spot on my liver that I did SIRT followed by ablation appears to have grown. Although I am getting a second opinion on that from my IR to see if it is just more scar tissue building up there from the ablation.

So the plan is get a port in ASAP and start FOLFIRI plus Cryamza (New monoclonal antibody drug).

I don't know if anyone has ever said to any of you that they could be hit by a bus. I heard it recently. There is also the cancer patients response. "A healthy person could get hit by a bus but a cancer patient sees it coming". Well if that is the case the bus is in my face with the high beams on and I don't have many places to run and hide.

Jeff, d***! I am so sorry. Words are just plain usless right now, there is no way on earth I can communicate my feelings. 

What a dance this is turning out to be. A never ending merry-go-around. 

You know you will have all of my most sincere thoughts and prayers and good vibes (I'm all about those good vibes) as you go forward. 

Cyber hugs, mate

I'm so sorry to  read this.  I wish we could all  join together to hold that  bus back and dim its lights.  Sending positive vibes and hope that the  new  treatment regimen will have a positive effect so you can keep on fighting.

because really there no words adequate to express myself here.  You've been so strong, Jeff, and fought this crap for so long.  My hopes for you are that you continue to find the strength to keep up the battle, and that the chemo plan will do its job and knock the new stuff back down.  And that you will get lots more time to ride that bike and continue to be the bad a s s that you are!

Wishing you the best in getting that port in fast and getting started on Folfiri.  We all know how discouraging this is, but the fight is on again.  You are an inspiration to so many of us, hope you can sense the good wishes and prayers coming in your direction.

Yes, what CM said.   I read this yesterday and have not known what to say.  I'm sick about your news, but know you will keep on doing what you do to fight and advocate for yourself.

Thank you all for your support. The funny thing is the night before I got the news i was listening to some music in my car and it really moved me. I cried like a baby. I mean I really let it out. When I went for the results I was remarably calm. Even my blood pressure was good which is usually high when I am waiting for scan results. I stayed very calm when my onc went over the scan report with me and agreed to chemo without any hesitation. I think it was because I got it all out of my system the night before.

Hey Jeff,

I'm really so very sorry that you're back in the fight once again.  You've been through so many ups and downs over the years, but I know that you'll continue the good fight.  Like Craig would say, "time to roar!".

All my best, take care,

Jeff - That's awful.  I so feel for you.  Ihope that the FOLFIRI and Cryamza knock things out in short order.  Maybe put a little in the gas tank of that bus and knock it out of commission.  Prayres and healing thoughts going your way.  Traci

I don'y know what to say on a bad report, I wish it weren't so, but it is what it is. Knuckle down and deal with it, do whatever they say is the best course of treatment. Hang tough, don't let the negative bull s**t cloud your mind. You can deal with this, others have, new stuff is coming down every week, you just have to hang on untill the proper treatment comes down. Hope is what we all live on, hold on to it.........Dave  ps: sorry if it sounds too rahrah, but thats what I tell myself on every reoccurance.

So sorry to read this, it seems just when you think you are good a brick falls on your head.  I hope Folfuri can knock this down, there is always hope and that's what we need to hold on to.

You know Jeff, I'm a big believer in tweaking off label chemistry and getting better blood chemistry.  My version of carrying a pocketful of tire tacks for aggressive bus drivers with a bad attitude.

If I were in your situation, I'd talk to this Belanger guy to see if he has any clear suggestions.  In the US, you have more advanced blood labs available.  I'd definitely use them. For us now, it is always that last molecule or two that does the trick.

Sending good thoughts and prayers to you. 

P.S. I now have a witty retort about the "anyone could get hit by a bus."  so thanks for that.

   I am sorry to be late to respond I got side tracked as most of us appear to. Into the second month of a 32 week withdrawel from oxycodone. Sometimes I wish they did a bit more profiling before the suggest meds for us. I don't know if the current treament they are suggesting is to take out the cancer or a containment protocol to let them think up a new regime. I know you will be doing the research long before they think of it and perhaps making a few suggestions of your own.  As always mate I can only wish you well and hope that there is something really special in the way of treatment just around the corner. That was always my hope for Craig and that it would turn up sooner than later.I have everything crossed for you and I don't think run and hide is in your character. Hugs ron.
