      At least they're not growing. What does the doctor say? and which scan showed the spots?

      What are your tumor markers saying? Has it spread anywhere else as of yet?

      I have 2 on my liver also. After 6 rounds of Folfiri + Avastin, I have 50% shrinkage. There has been no change now after 12 rounds of chemo. My oncologist thinks they are probably building resistance to the chemo.
