Mymom- clean scan

Postby mymom » Sun Dec 10, 2017 11:04 pm

Hi all. I hope you were all blessed with a wonderful thankssgiving. Mom had another scan two days before turkey day and it continues to be clean. I thought I posted the results and realized I had not. October 2015 she had an ablation of a liver met and has been clean since. This is her longest remission. Since being diagnosed at stage 4 in may 2011 She has had two liver resections- many rounds of chemo, HAI pump and a few liver ablations - oh and a few reoccurrences. But it all got her to this point. We are enjoying our holiday season. She enjoys life. Yesterday my parents and my husband and kids spent a snowy day in NYC at Macy’s Santa, a ninja restaurant and the Xmas tree. Great day. I am thankful for all the time I get with her- she’s my best friend. I stop by here and there when possible to check in. I think of you all.

Great news! Very happy to hear this, I wish your mother continued life in NEDville!

Enjoy your holidays and yes you have so much to be thankful for!

Best wishes your mom and your family,

DX - 12/16
MSS - KRAS wild
Stage IV CC with liver mets
5FU - Failed twice - 1/17 and 3/17
Irinotecan + Cetuximab: 8/17 - 2 wks on, 1 wk off to lessen side effects
CEA 12/17 - 37.8! CEA 1/17 - 33!
CT-Scan 9/1/17. Shrinkage of liver mets (4 measurable) and no bowel blockage

Removal of primary tumor and resection still on back burner. Have to be able to be OFF chemo one month prior and one month after surgery and evaluate benefit vs risk.
