As we were really hopeful in doing the laser thing in Germany, we got the latest scan results and it showed progression in lung mets size and possibly new hepatic lesions, 3 on each side.
Here's the mets update as per scans:
March 2015 - 120+ lung mets, no other spread (folfiri + erbitux)
June 2015 - Lung mets Reduction in number and size, not defined exactly how many lesions. No other spread. ( folfirinox plus Avastin)
September 2015 - Lung mets increased in size , with lung nodes 35-L and 26-R , (possible) hepatic spread, 3 on each side,biggest being 1.8x2.4x1.8cm (folfirinox plus Avastin)
We will consult our onco today and discuss our options. She mentioned only thru our phone conversation that she might put my husband on oral chemo, not sure if Stivagra is the name.
I've already researched about it and it is not that popular because of its side effects, haven't gotten any news also regarding its efficacy.
I will still mail my husband's latest cd in Germany and try to get Dr Rolle's opinion regarding my husband's condition.
I've learned about this only yesterday and decided not to tell my husband yet, as he was on an all day meeting yesterday and wanted to spare him of this news until today. Might let the doctor be the one to explain the latest results and treatment plan to him.
I've poured a hefty cry yesterday until there's no more tears left, right now I feel numb and still crying On the inside. I have called his mom to go with us, for her to hear the treatment options as well. Im in my valley. I feel as if I'm drowning. I'm so clueless and don't know what else we can do.
