    Got my second PET Scan ,three sessions on Chemo. Better than expected results the tumor that was left after surgury has shrunk from (21) cm down to one(1)cm. Genetics indicate possibility of immuno thearapy.

      Greg, you make me laugh "Growing like a three year old on multivitamins." LOL
      Keith, glad to hear your tumor has shrunk so much and that you are a candidate for immunotherapy.

      Oxiliplatin gave me bad case of neuropathy. Dosage cut after 8 sessions of folfox but. by then it was too late. Five years later I still have it but symptoms have lessened using meds. More chemo coming so I’m not real optimistic. Some people don”t get it at all or get symptoms that go away. Maybe you will be lucky.
