Based just on the longest measurement alone, that’s a 20% reduction which is very nice. However based on area visible on a 2D scan it’s more like a 50% reduction!
And because of geometry fun, what you’ve quoted could correspond to up to ~60% reduction in tumour volume! (I’ve had to make an assumption there as one dimension is missing).
This is overall similar to (or a bit better than) my response after 4 FOLFOX rounds, and both I and my oncologist were very happy with that. When they subsequently resected the lesions, the tumour tissue was between 40% - 80% dead.
Aside from shrinkage before surgery, one of the more important parts of this treatment is to confirm that your tumour biology is sensitive to the chemo, and thus a good chance of having ‘systemic control’. I’m no oncologist but I’d find this very encouraging.

Omfg, this is awesome. Went from 167 when I started chemo, to 98 to 20 freaking 4. Yall, I'm stoked.
