Saw the oncologist today. My lab work was good. My CEA has gone down to 113 from 400 in March when this all began. Dr. Wants to drop the 5-fu and reduce Ironateacan to 120. He says he wants to give this a try before he scraps the plan and has to come up with another. He wants me to get fluids if non stop diarrhea begins and also use Lomital and Immodium. He mentioned that he may have to go to Vectibux. Anyone have information on how this went for them? I will have treatment tomorrow. Swing some chickens that this works(dropping 5 FU) and I keep my fluids up and stop dehydration from rapid elimination.
