You think that things are going well then it all falls apart.
My history so far-:
Emergency Hartmans March 2019 pT3N1b (2/22) M0 at Weston-super-Mare General left with a stoma.
Transferred to RUH 3 months later as moved to Trowbridge.
Refused chemo when offered for various reasons.
October 2020 CT & MRI showed large growth on liver and chemo started 6 cycles of FOIFIRE & Cetuximab.
Liver resection January 2021 and scan identified a superior Pancreatic node and superior Rectal node.
The second 6 cycles of the same chemo started in March 2021.
July 2021 SABR radiation on Pancreatic node at BRI Bristol.
13th October CT Scan
15th October saw a Surgeon who wished to remove the rectum, anus & sphincter and all lymph nodes. I was quite happy with this as this seemed to possibly sort things out.
However, he did not have the CT results, when he had them I was requested to see him today.
The Pancreatic node has increased from 12 15 mm to 13 25mm so it would seem that the SABR treatment did not work.
My Spleen contains 2 new low-density objects suspicious of new mets.
The Superior Rectal node has increased to 16mm.
So no operation will be done at this time, back to chemo.
So I have an appointment with my Oncologist on Monday who I hope will have a cunning plan!!
Although I am not happy about the situation I accept it and look forward to further chemo to possibly resolve the situation.
It never rains but it pours!!!
All part of growing up.
