Month 27 .
Infusion every six weeks.
CEA under control.
Have started some non-vegan foods.
Still taking aspirin and continuing with juicing.

Outstanding Henry, well done and thanks for the update. Although I’m not MSI-H, your signature was one of the ones that motivated me in the early tough days.

Cheers

Finally after almost 3 years of immunotherapy and 2 years of clear CT and blood work , the onco team has decided to stop further infusions.
It is still largely an uncharted territory but some data has emerged to suggest that it is time to remove the immunotherapy life jacket .
Tighter monitoring regime for a year.
A bit scary but I guess you have to stop at some point.
Have to focus on a healthy lifestyle and stress-free mindset.
My wife and daughter are a bit freaked out but that's understandable.
