I know a lot of you are waiting to hear how things went with my scan. The doc explained that overall, there was about a 20% growth of the existing tumors in my lungs. Nothing new popped up. He suspects that my body is reacting positively to the Avastin/FOLFOX. While I was on vacation, I wasn't getting chemo, so it's possible the tumors had a party in my lungs. If I go back on the chemo, that might stop the party, so he would like me to do three more cycles and then scan again. That's the plan.
20% sounded like a really lot to me, but we're talking growth like a 1.7cm tumor now being a 1.8cm tumor. The doc said I'm at a borderline place where we could either keep using what we're using or switch to something else.
My feelings are all mixed up about this right now. And I just got home from chemo, so I'm tired. So I'll be going to rest now.
