How are your results from Folfoxiri? Where are your mets?[/quote]

The FOLFOXIRI and FOLFIRI have worked great. My largest liver met was 14.5 cm when we started, and I had over a dozen smaller ones. Now there is no clear lesions on the CT Scan or MRI. I also had 3 liver directed therapies, so hard to say which treatments were most effective but the combination of them all shown a great response. I do have some liver complications as I started with such a heavy tumor burden, which has led to lots of scar tissue.
Dx June 2020, stage IV, w liver mets in both lobes. M, age 50. Right-sided colon tumor. BRAF mutation. CEA 120
July 2020 - November 2021 23 cycles chemo (FOLFOXIRI x9, FOLFIRI x12, 5-FU x2) + Avastin (discontinued Nov 2021)
December 2020 - February 2021 Radioembolization, Chemoembolization x2
