I was wondering if anyone is receivingIrinotecan as systemic and FUDR in HAI liver pump and their experience with it. Are they effective in long term survival for stage 4 colon cancer with mets to the liver?

    I was wondering if there is anyone on this protocol of getting Irinotecan systemically and FUDR through the HAI liver pump. Any experience is appreciated. My husband has colon cancer stage 4 died back in Jan. 2018, with Mets to the liver and we go to MSKCC in N.Y.C for treatment . He had The colon tumor removed and since he had his entire liver full of tumors it was inoperable , so they put the HAI liverpump in at the same time as colon surgery  in order for the liver tumors to shrink hopefully and become operable later on. Please share your experiences.

    My husband

    had his liver resected almost 6 weeks ago and had the hai pump put in. He starts the chemo in the pump in 2 weeks. No systemic  he finished 12 rounds of it right before he had surgery, also he can’t take Irinotecan anyway. Right now he is considered cancer free and the pump is just to be sure it gets anything leftover.

    next.....

    I got resected 5 weeks ago plus pump. Chemo is already in a pump. They plan a systemic one very soon. They believe there may be cells   Left on a microscopic level. Butt.
