Topic: Time for a scan
My husband completed his fourth round of Folfirinox today so it's now time for a scan to see whether it is having any effect. He has never had any pain or other symptoms, his liver function tests have always been fairly good, and his tumors don't result in elevated tumor markers so we really have no idea how he is doing. His last scan was such a disappointment when it showed recurrence of intrahepatic CC ten months after what we thought was a successful resection. I'm very worried about this one but am trying not to let it ruin the holidays as we won't learn the results until January 2. As usual, my husband is being very reasonable, saying he hopes the results will be good but, if not, we'll figure out another course of action. By the way, he has done remarkably well in tolerating Folfirinox. It's a tough regimen but his side effects have been very manageable and he's still working full-time and enjoying his life.
