Congrats on your response. My DH had a complete response in liver to 5 rounds of Folfox, though they did do resection at time of colon/lung resection bc original met location meant only 8% of liver had to be removed and it allowed them to do pathology to confirm (scar tissue only). It is a very good indicator, which we were relieved to hear about and I suspect it means very good things for you as well. So great to hear good news here.

You probably fall in the category of medical miracles.
I can only recommend that you should do all you can to help your body.
Exercise, go on non animal - low fat diet ( follow Dr. Mcdougall ) , drink tons of fresh juices ( Chris beat cancer) , meditate and stay positive and happy.
