Not what we were hoping to hear
So, just back from the last CT scan results. Looks like the Irinotecan has stopped being effective.
Just finished three months of chemo
- CEA markers up from 62 to 209
- 3 new liver mets 9mm, 5mm, 2mm
- Existing 2 liver mets have grown, one from 24mm to 55mm
- 2 enlarged lymph nodes in lungs
Not what we were hoping to hear.
My wife did have another dose of Irinotecan scheduled for tomorrow, but they've decided to switch to Oxalyplatin as that was quite effective for her initially.
I think that now we're just waiting to see if the change to Oxy has an impact. The liver scan has been forwarded to the QE hospital, but not sure if they'll be able to resect - our oncologist wasn't able to tell us where the nodules were - if they were all localised or not. Feel a bit frightened for the future now.
