Topic: First PET scan results and CA 19-9 results since finishing chemo
So today was the follow up visit for my husband.
He finished his first round of chemo (2 weeks on/1 off for 8 weeks total.)
He has stage 4 CC (in liver, lungs, lymph nodes)
PET scan shows...
All tumors (liver, lymphs and lungs) have "shrinkage" (liver tumor is 66% smaller.)
His CA 19-9 went from 77 to 31 (so he's back in the normal range.)
We are happy that he has responded so well to chemo thus far
and happy for shrinkage and happy for normal CA 19-9.
Off to another round of chemo on Thursday....
He feels great, and that is the most important thing of all for now!
