Topic: CPT-11 Combination Therapy
Hi All.... Start new regimen on Monday called the fofil not folfox treatment. It is a combination of Leucovorin, irrotecan, 5-fu push and 5-fu pump. Day one IV and push and attach 5-fu pump for continuos flow of 46 hours to be removed on day three. Day five through eleven filgratism injection. Repeated every two weeks. Well this first time out cycle two will have to wait a few days until I get back from my trip to Maine. Onco Feels I should do fine but have immodium on hand for trip. I guess there is a chance I might poop on someone. Myself Ha! Matbe I need to get a coulpe depends for the trip. Ha! Onco feel this is a good treatment and has lots of previous positive responses. A new adventure for me! Onco was happy to see liver stable to where it have previously shrunk. Also, that 9cm lung nodule was a misprint; the nodule was only 9MM. Also the mass adjacent my sigmoid colon is gone. Was explain it must have been a water pocket and the lasix I 've been taking for effusion got rid of it. So now I know that water pockets can resemble tumor masses. Amazing, that tells me if your having water retention,it's possible whatever scans you have may not be quite as bad as you think. What looks like numerous nodules some could easily be water pockets. Cheerio for now, got to drop son off to catch bus for classes.
God Bless All!
