Great Group Here! And What's next?

Postby TerryC » Mon Jul 09, 2018 1:46 am

Hi All ,

What a great group here that I've stumbled upon! Been reading some of the posts & replies; there are amazing stories CEA numbers that have spiked to the 1000's and come back to single digits, the positivity comes from every reply I see and a ton of info ~ yay!!

A couple questions:
1 ~ What's after Capox, if it doesn't last?
2 - Has anyone had experience with radioembolization/SIRT?

God bless you all as you thrive through this!!
