Topic: Chemo is suppressing the growth
I haven't written in quite some time, but I read and pray for everyone having to enter this site. My mother was diagnosed in July. Her tumor had doubled in size from first detecting it in July, until a follow up scan in September. During that time the doctors were trying to get her jaundice/bilirubin under control. She started chemo treatment in October, and her December CT scan showed no change in the size! This is quite a blessing and a wonderful Christmas present. She receives chemo - one week on, one week off. Gemcidin/Oxyplatin with a follow up of two days of fluids. The only side effects seem to be fatigue/neuropathy during the chemo week. She is a fighter, and I admire her greatly. Our prayer for her during the second round of chemo, is for the tumor to begin shrinking. All prayers are welcome.
