Re: Pump vs. SIRT

I want to thank everyone for their input. Quick update: a recent MRI contradicted a less recent PET things are smaller. I am going to present all of this to my husband tonight. As the plan is to schedule the mapping procedure for SIRT the first week in September, it hasn't been officially scheduled ...

Re: If you want prayer stop in here!

Please keep up the prayers my DH had and MRI this week that contradicts what the PET says that his liver is worse the MRI and CEA say smaller not bigger!

Hope is alive and well in His name and my soul!

Re: ...progression...

Hope is alive and well! Our nurses at the cancer center were so excited for us they called the very next day! They could have waited till this upcoming Friday for the oncologist to follow up with us but good news in this game is to few and far between! I don't have any new measurements that will pro...

Pump vs. SIRT

Over this long year and a half with my husband's diagnosis. I've tried my best to be patient (which is more difficult than imaginable or I guess perhaps not), I've researched SIRT, HAI pump, alternative therapies, natural remedies, diet changes, we've experienced highs and lows (I don't just mean CE...

Re: Questions, questions, too many questions.

Re: Questions, questions, too many questions.

So my husband and I had a long awaited sigh of relief we spoke to an IR doctor who had no qualms with scheduling my hubby for SIRT. He seems pretty flexible willing to work along with the oncologist chemo schedule as long as we take appropriate breaks. We told him in our case at Cleveland Clinic my ...

Re: ...progression...

Apparently the tune is changing on my husband's condition and in a positive way ((not to get my hopes up)). Chemo was delayed this week because the oncologist wants an MRI before going forward with irinotecan which can't be done till the 15th. So where DH was looking fir a break from vectibix he got...

Re: Life insurance, anyone?

So before we found cancer and DH was let go from his job. Last hired first fired, he neglected to try and carry on his life insurance. Is there any company who will approve even a low level life insurance policy given a patient's track record to SAVE their life? Let us know what you find, I’ll sign...

Re: Life insurance, anyone?

The general beginning questions include whether or not there is a history of cancer almost always followed up with any diagnosis of liver disease.

Re: If you want prayer stop in here!

Thank you for keeping my young family in your prayers. DH gets a (unwanted) break this cycle. This week he decided no vectibix but treatment was stopped altogether till he gets an MRI next week per his oncologist she really doesnt like irinotecan and wants another scan to be sure its three way to go...

Re: ...progression...

So Dr. Pnemonitis is ordering tests in DHs biopsies from last year for the HER2. He might qualify for 2 trials if it tests out ok. We talk to an IR doctor the 12th and hoping to go down to Columbus soon. My hubby has been getting pats on the back from the new people he's been seeing. He's been so fo...
