Just finished my 12th round of FOLFOX (9 with oxi). No doctors appointments for 3 months until my next ct scan. I don’t post much but wanted everyone on here to know that you are all my inspirations and your stories give me so much hope. Thanks for all the information you give.

Congrats!
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 6 years NED). Is this real life?

Congrats! I was due for #9 today, but now put off another week due to low platlets...and it has already been 3 weeks. My DR did say the very end might be harder and certainly my platlets are taking their sweet time regenerating. But only 3 more to go...so close, but also seems far away. And there you are...all done. That is something worth celebrating! Congratulations again!
