      Best wishes that chemo and an ablation knocks this back. I am a Stage IV rectal cancer survivor - just celebrated my 5 year anniversary of diagnosis. Extensive lymph node involvement and one met in my lung that they zapped with SBRT radiation. I don't considered myself cured, but I am in a long term NED, aka remission.

      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.
