Re: Sort of good news

Good luck! Is CEA a good indicator for your peri mets? I'm asking since your primary has been removed and you don't have mets elsewhere... I don't know what to make out of my CEA....

Are you getting surgery for your peri mets?


I will be. My onc first told me it was to be chemo for life. Then he decided to explore all options.

Currently, based on stable scan results and my CEA dropping, the plan is 2 - 4 more cycles of FOLFIRI, then a month off, and then HIPEC. Wish me luck.

Re: What do you think?

Words of support... brokenwings, this was never going to be easy, but you can do this. Modern medicine has come very far (not far enough obviously) but if those tumors are getting blood and nutrients supplied to them, then the chemo can reach them. I learned this from an oncologist recently, because...

Re: Low platelets before chemo

I second what lovelifr789 said, it can sometimes be dietary related. I usually have decent platelet counts and they dipped almost to dangerous lows when i began eating Tahini butter. I stopped and not two weeks later, they have climbed back to normal.
