    My dad passed away last january unfortunately. He did have some success with the erbitux and folfirox/folfiri treatment. It just stopped working and he had a lot of complications not related to the cancer that put his treatment on hold. He definitely had a lot of complications from the chemo itself and its so difficult to go through it but he fought til the very end. I do think there is something to the oil, i would...

      Anyone ever been prescribed these two drugs? I cant find a lot about Zaltrap, but i cant seem to find ANYTHING about cyramza. My dad has mets to lymph nodes and some in lungs apparently. Dr is recommending these two with FOLFIRI. He was on FOLFOX with Erbitux, and it got rid of all the cancer in his stomach, but it kept growing in the lymph nodes. They were concerned he had a lymphoma actually, but He just had a surg...

        My dad had colon cancer jan 2015, and thought it would be all gone but it spread, now he has peritoneal cancer. He was diagnosed with this febuary this year. Basically my question is if your cea level rises from 4 to 12 in the span of a few weeks, is this bad? As far as i know his cea levels have always been within range and have never been a good indicator of cancer. Although I am not sure how his cea levels were w...

          Thank you all for replying, it is helpful in understanding some of this. He hasnt been feeling good, in a lot of pain and having constipation but we dont know if its from the reversal surgery or cancer. Pet scan showed no blockages. He sees his oncologist may 16th, so hoping he can start chemo then.

            Well my dad had his first pet scan today since the first pet scan that discovered the peritoneal cancer. It wasnt a good report, its traveled to his chest. He has not started chemo yet, just playing the waiting game on the doctors. His second opinion doc said that he is able to have the erbitux and something else, as it hasnt mutated. He does not want to get the hipec, and he prob wouldnt be eligible because its trav...

              My dad was diagnosed with peritoneal cancerl about a month ago. Pet scan said there were three locations that highlighted, so three tumors i am assuming. Doctors arent giving much information other than they can try avastin with folfox and folfuri(sp?). Jan 2015 my dad had colon cancer, had resection with ileostomy, and did chemo. Tried both folfox and folfuri, but not avastin. Chemo stopped in sept 2015. Waited on ...

                My dad was diagnosed with stage 3c colon cancer january 2015, when the doc went in doing exploratory surgery to find out why he kept having blockages. He was given an ileostomy. He is cancer free as far as we know and had an appt. to talk about getting the reversal done. Just this last week, he developed what he thought was a blockage. He was in severe pain and eventually we took him to the ER because he couldnt han...
