Re: Is surgery always the best option?

He did recommend another CT, the last one taken May 28,2014. Just 2 months ago. He said with surgery it was a good idea to take another. I guess ...

Re: Is surgery always the best option?

He is Stage 4-this is a chronic condition with no cure. Especially if he has had a recurrence after the first surgery. Right? What if surgery kills him?

So then oncologist ordered a PET scan but you only get three in your lifetime with the new changes in Medicare and he only has one left. So than...

Re: Dad no longer NED

Hello everyone, update on my dad. My dad has had 4 more rounds of Folfox. On his 3rd round he had a terrible allergic reaction and thought he was going to die.

Re: Dad no longer NED

Hi,
My father will have a new port placed on Tuesday and start chemo on Wednesday. His Onc decided to stick with Folfox for two cycles and than see if that is still effective. He said the neuropathy was not bad enough to omit the Oxi. We will go with his suggestion. Take care and Gold bless.
