Scan-time is here.
Thank God I had a mid-chemo CT scan that was sort of positive (nothing in lungs nor in liver, lymph nodes looking ok, peritoneal disease looking stable, CEA slightly down).
Now, after 4 rounds of bad-ass Folfirinox, I have another CT scan and a PET scan.
This morning I was feeling so anxious that I had to take a "happy pill" to get me through the CT. (I might take another one before my PET scan this afternoon).
So... what can I say? Stupid peritoneal carcinomatosis doesn't usually respond very well to systemic chemo, so I know I won't have a terrific response nor a miraculous shrinkage... Let's just hope it shrinks enough to get me to the OR...
Please send me good thoughts and prayers, they're very much needed
