I'll jump on Amy's good news bandwagon. Just got out of the oncologist's office - DH had his 3-month scan done on Monday - and the first words out of his mouth were "You scan looks good!". The adrenal gland tumor is still shrinking (albeit more slowly, 7% decrease since late May vs 35% between March and May), the vertebrae tumor looks necrotic, and the lung lesions are stable. Nothing new, nothing growing. As much as we'd love to completely destroy this beast, this may be the best we can hope for. Since he tolerates Folfiri + Avastin rather well, DH will do another 6 cycles.
I asked about Vitamin D and he only recommends the "normal" dose (2000mg/day), but since DH wasn't taking any, that should be a good start.
Phew! I'll sleep better tonight. Scanxiety was pretty bad last night...
