CT Results and Chemo #9

My CT scan showed no change in the lung nodules. So the infusions are not shrinking them. The bottom line is that it is basically the same as taking the pills last year. Over 2015 there was only minute growth. The doctor decided it was a good time to take a break from the infusions. This will give me a chance to heal completely from the abscess, get rid of the diarrhea for a while and gain some of my energy back. I will stay on the pills, but at 50% more than before. That will be 2 weeks on and 1 week off. During that time we will keep a watch on the nodules and can continue infusions at any time we need to do so. I'm looking forward to the break. It's been a long summer.

Chemo #8 and CT Scan

Chemo 8 went well. Still no Avastin due to the healing abscess. That thing it taking forever to go away. I also had my CT scan to see how things are working.

Chemo #7

Continuing on with the medium dose of infusions. I had to skip the Avastin due to the abscess still healing. Seems like it will be a long time before that thing quits bleeding and leaking.

Chemo #6

This time I got a lower dose than before, but still higher since starting the Xeloda. I fared well, even though I had to take imodium every few days to ward off the diarrhea. Still hurting butt and healing abscess. I had to forgo the Avastin.
