Vectibix (aka p-mab per the oncologist and nurse) ROCKS! Really doing a number on DH's liver mets.
DH has the face rash (his nose looks like he's been in a fight with all the scabs) and chest/back rash. Nurse called it stable looking but we didn't get a grade. We were told heavy duty lotion (he's using Eucerin), a prescription gel, antibiotics, sunblock, and a hat when he's outside. I've read Benadryl helps with itching so I need to ask about that next time. Any trick that helps.
Doctor added irinitican at 66% dose and DH's neutrophils took a dive to 1 which we've seen before with FOLFOX. So no irinitican today, just p-mab. Suspect it will be alternating like that.
