NED for now

Postby StDrogo » Tue Oct 16, 2018 6:13 am

Just a brief update. I looked over scans with surgeon from last week today. There's nothing there, so that's good—might be enough of an impetus to lay off on the drinking for the the next six months' reprieve that we've got. The cancer really ought to be back by now, and in a dreadful way, so I'm tempted to revert to an earlier theory that this was never even cancer . . .

ETA: Or that it was actually a borderline ovarian primary of intestinal type all along. The performance status of that rare subset of colorectal patients (29 reported, not including my wife) with ovarian metastases involving concomitant ascites and pleural effusions without diffuse disease is exceptionally good compared to the normal cohort of CRC patients with ovarian metastases, who generally have a dismal prognosis.
Wife Age 33
02/17 dx Ovarian mass, ascites, pleural effusions
03/17 Resection of 16 x 20 cm ovarian mass; CEA = 10, CA125 = 180, CA19-9 = 36
04/17 Emergency surgery, diastatic perforation, purulent peritonitis, extended right hemicolectomy, well-differentiated adenocarcinoma in splenic flexure, 1/16 lymph
11/17 CT = NED, CEA < 1
12/17 CRS (peritoneal nodules of foreign body giant cell reaction, no evidence of malignancy; liver resection—1 cm FBGCR and .5 cm focal nodular hyperplasia), HIPEC
