Hi I have stage 4 with mets on the liver, lungs and lymph nodes on the chest. I had liver surgery last year but unfortunately it came back there pretty quick and to the lymph nodes. So I went from curable to palliative. Ive been on chemo - folfiri , the last scan was stable apart from lymph nodes which were slightly bigger. I saw the consultant on Monday and a break from chemo was decided as it is taking longer to recover each time, and I feel I live in the loo!! Im to have 1 week of radio on my chest nodes. The consultant mentioned I will be scanned after Christmas - longsurf was also mentioned - which I know is the last resort and Ive heard not very good
I just worried is a chemo break the right thing to do ? I do trust my consultant but surely a break will mean growth! Any advice would be great.
I feel when you move to palliative you are given up on .Thanks if you have read all this !!
