Hey buddy :
you WILL miss more for not LOOKING .. than not knowing !
SO ramble on my friend ! and keep LOOKING !!!!!!
In our world, MORE info is better = ALWAYS !
My personal take = my sit rep = I had pseudoadjuvant chemo after resection of a "clean" lung met
it was controversial BUTT I chose FOLFOX x 12 cycles after having had only Xeloda for neoadjuvant chemorad and post-op adjuvant for the primary resection.
One note ( BC / BCCA related ) depending upon who you may have extended health care with,
you may be faced with out of pocket $$ for Xeloda.
I have bitched about it here and still hate Screwed Blue Cross , BUTT got some coin back from Roche patient assistance.
IF it is not an option with BCCA through BC Medical .... prepare to pay ( I would and I did, and would do so again )
Keep us in the loop and PM me anytime
Cheers and Harmony

We seem to deal with several populations, but I'm not as studied on the wild ones. Largely we were able to cut the worst KRAS wild survivors out 6 years ago, and some part of our program has been successful with oral chemo+celecoxib Mand supplements suppressing CEA surges (Kras wild tends to show as CEA drops with Erbitux) over time by revving various immune components.
I'd probably be looking at your MCV and CEA history more closely if they're not too noisy from cyclical chemo. Trying out the 2010 Life Extension supplements (including things like PSK and plainer supplements) without worrying about the cimetidine but perhaps doing WGP and Prendergast's high vitamin D3/K2 because that roughly corresponds to what suppressed CEA surges with the oral chemo and celecoxib. For us, chemo is not so low dose (daily averaged toward the total cyclic 5FU dose) as much as we suppress side effects with various nutrient strategies.
