Topic: Stable - its not great news but its better then the alternative
Well after our last visit with the new oncologist we have been informed that my sisters cancer is considered "stable"
While its not great news, its much better then the alternative.
Her ca19-9 continue to fall. She's come down from 14,651 to 583. Of course the doc's all say not to read too much into those numbers, but its hard not to. At least there going in the right direction.
The stop short of telling us that her cancer is shrinking but the whole "Stable" thing is really positive for us, or at least we think it is.
Her routine of Gemcitabine and Oxlaiplatin have not been changed, her dose of Ox however has been decreased by 20% because of the neuropathy in her feet. Hopefully the decrease will not allow things to begin moving again.
Just wanted to share the news.
