Re: Review of my Journey so far -> ⓊⓟⒹⒶⓉⒺ Feb/2018

One of the best things about this forum, besides CR Guy and all the other great members, is the search function. I don't know of any other groups (including FaceBook groups) that have a search function that works as well. There is a wealth of information and experience here. I agree with mypinkheav...

Re: Stage 4a, chemo to start after removal of partial colon+liver met.

Hi andelib, Thank you for your kind words. I’m surprised and happy to hear that your father, in Turkey, will have a ”dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency test” before starting chemo. That is to my knowledge not done in France (where I am) or in USA where most members on this Forum live. I trie...

Re: any peeps with BRAF mutation on here?

Dear Mrs Z,
Hugs and prayers from me too.
I have seen others here feeling that nothing is working - and suddenly a ’new’ drug does the trick.

Re: Possibly unnecessary open liver surgery

Hi mbpser,
Surgery is over - that is good news! :)
The doctor does not think that he can go back to work in a week like he hopes to be able to.

Please take it easy - to heal both inside and outside. And remember NO lifting!

Where we live the recommended treatment for >1 liver met is chemo, 4-6 treatments before surgery and 6-8 after - in total 12. The chemo after liver mets resection was not fun of course but he got through it without ...
