Hi Sophy and Mastan.
Just got home from another mini vacation
. I try to pepper dh's schedule with mini getaways in between chemo treatments to make him relax and forget about his condition even for a little while.
Thank you for your responses, my dh and I already spoke about this option and we are really considering this method. We figured that should he be qualified for laser, it will shorten the medication process. I remember before, upon diagnosis, he had 6 session of folfox and his liver mets were already gone. Right then, he had his primary colon tumor and 46 lung mets. After surgery, we then opted for chemo and targeted medicines (vectibix then erbitux) but to no avail, his mets increased to 120+.
We just thought that the 46 mets that he had before can easily be lasered out instead of the current number now. Plus he was stronger then, right now he can already feel the effects of chemo, being on chemo for almost a year now.
Anyway, the only thing that we need to figure out is our time away from home. We have 2 young kids (2 and 8yrs old) and going to Germany means leaving them for a month
and since my husband's mets are bilateral, and they can only do it one at a time, it means we have to stay there longer? Or probably come back after 6months for the other lung?
Anyway, thank you for your reply. Will keep this thread posted.
