Cancer has spread/Metastasized - PhillieG

Oh No Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on November 24, 2011 View this journey (26 Experiences)

Lymph nodes in lung look inflamed/larger. Quite possibly a problem. Going to go back on Irinotecan & Erbitux every other week until further notice. I have had some bad reactions to Irinotecan where I get stomach cramps that can be real bad. I am waiting until next week to start up with that since I want to enjoy Thanksgiving. I also have one of those Erbitux ulcer growths on my right "Grand Toe" that is causing a lot of pain. I will have to have them cut the nail away on that toe. That's loads of fun too...

I just had my second infusion of Irinotecan & Erbitux yesterday. It really knocked my socks off but I do not feel too bad today. I've found if I get up and get out I can do pretty well for a while. I hope I haven't spoken too soon...

    Sorry to hear your wife is not well. I do not know of any trials. I suggest you search the ACS site any Govt sites to see what's available.
