        oliveF Hi Brian
        I had a bad November , I had stomach surgery because of a digestive blockage , CA 19-9 keep rising and the oncologist thinks that the cancer is evolving again, so they changed the chemo again and dropped the Abraxane to go back to Irinotecan and 5FU , I fell much better now and have recovered from the surgery ,
        will see how go the chemo next week
