• Liver surgery scheduled in 2 weeks to remove 3 lesions.

    Asked by Pilldr on Wednesday, March 20, 2019

    Liver surgery scheduled in 2 weeks to remove 3 lesions.

    All clear and then 6 months after finishing chemo I have 3 liver lesions. I can also look forward to more chemo. I’m having genetic testing, exploring immunology and looking at targeted drug studies. If I am not suitable for any of those I will be on Folfiri and avastin! Has anybody had good results with targeted therapy?

      I am up for Folfiri with Avastin as my next line of treatment when the doctor decides I have progressed enough. I keep hoping I am going to hear about something new and snazzy on the Colorectal cancer front, since oncologists meet in january to talk about new treatments.

      I will be seeing my doc in April for the first time since he went to conference. Maybe I will have good news to bring you then! A lot depends on the mutation that you have, but I think that eventually they will unlock a treatment that works for each one.

      Husband will be starting a clinical trial drug immunotherapy in the next two weeks. Looking forward to it as the current Avastin chemo isn't doing much. It makes us happy that there appears to be so many new and promising things on the horizon to try.

      If you have the mutations for immunotherapy, it can be a game changer.

      I had Stage IV rectal cancer. Avastin was part of my chemo cocktail every infusion. It worked for me. I've been NED for almost 4 years.
