Topic: Hey I'm back in the Good News category
As you may recall, a PET/CT in early June showed sudden, rapid, and expansive metasasis of my cancer. Since then, I've received four rounds of FOLFOX and 10 days of radiation on my spine and sternum. It's too early to judge the effectiveness of the radiation, but a new CT showed bone lesions as stable, shrinkage of the three lesions in the liver and two in the peritoneum, and shrinkage of the multiple enlarged lymph nodes. I also have significantly decreased bone pain, and less abdominal swelling. Every part of the report represented improvement. So we will continue with this treatment as long as it continues to have palliative effect.
My wife and stepsons, who bore the emotional burden of seeing my health decline so quickly just a few months ago, are very relieved to see me feeling better, and for that I am most grateful to the physicians who are fighting for me.
Thank you all for your continued thoughts and good wishes.
