Topic: Folfox showing success

Folfox (5-FU and Oxalaplatin) for the first three months has been successful for my wife.
1) she has more energy and coughing has decreased a lot!
2) her new scans showed some lung nodules to shrink and a large area of tumor consolidation has
cleared.
3) the cholangiocarcinoma itself remains stable (not growing). so that too is a blessing
Thank you
