New Guy

Postby Gravelyguy » Thu Jul 05, 2018 6:42 pm

Hi Everyone,

New Guy here. I have been a lurker since last winter as I was researching what I was going through. I can’t tell you all how helpful you all have been.

I continue to check in as it has given me lots of people to pray for. I decided I might as well join in the odd chance that I can help someone out in the future.

6/17 dx mCRC t3n1m1 very low rectal tumor 2 liver Mets 1.3 cm and .9 cm

6/17 begin 4 rounds Folfox w/Vectibix
9/17 short course radiation
10/17 rectal and liver resection cancer is out of here!
11/17-3/18 8 rounds Folfox
6/18 still NED!! Takedown
8/28/18 still NED! CEA .8 new low for me
10/18/18 colonoscopy clear
12/12/18 clear scans, CEA .9 still NED!
