Re: Stage 4 “no cure without surgery”

The liver surgeon put in his notes that he could not rule out a complete response to chemo. You and I were both on the dreaded Vectabix. I really ...

Re: Stage 4 going to yearly surveillance!

Just wanted to update you that mom got an all clear on her CT today at Mayo...back in 6 months! The one thing that concerned me (just me of course) was her CEA rose from 2.4 to 3 but the onc said that she wasn’t concerned with it because it is still considered normal. To be concerned she would have...

Re: Stage 4 going to yearly surveillance!

Dave! Awesome news! I was on the lookout for an update from you since you and my mom are on similar schedules! She heads up to Mayo tomorrow for the bloodwork/scan/onc meeting all in one day—praying for happy results like yours! So the scans jump to yearly at the 3 year mark (from surgery I assume)...

Stage 4 going to yearly surveillance!

Hi Everyone, Just got back from Mayo. Everything went great. I had my bloodwork, scans, and met with my oncologist all before 11. My oncologist said my risk of recurrence went significantly down after the 3 year mark so I only need to go yearly now. Have to admit I am a little nervous of not having ...
