Things continue to go well. She completed her fourth infusion (2 Folfox, 2 Folfox plus Avastin) last week. Side effects continue to be manageable. No more mouth sores. No more cold sensitivity. Foot pain, on the night prior to disconnect, is still there, but not as bad as the past two times. First bite is still a pain. In general she has good energy, although that drops a bit following the infusion. She did get a bit of anemia, but those numbers are improving now.
Had a bit of a CEA flare.
AST is in normal range now.
We can no longer feel the liver mass. In fact, the oncologist was so pleased with her progress that he ordered another scan which she completed today. The intent is to bring her case back to the tumor board. Hopefully, we'll know the results next week. Fingers crossed.
