    Hi all, My mum was diagnosed as stage 4 pan can in late Oct 2017 with a PET-CT scan,  and started FOLFIRINOX immediately. As heard there are about 5-10% patients who can't secrete CA19-9 and I guess my mum is one of them, coz her CA19-9 is ALWAYS within normal range. (At diagnosis, 12.1. During treatment it's about 6-8) However, my mum's CA125 and CEA kept elevating during the treatment. So my oncologist arr...

She is doing FOLFIRINOX and the upcoming treatment is the 6th cycle.  In Hong Kong, IRE is not mature and my oncologist even did not hear of this before... So we went to Taiwan for IRE consultation. Though the doctor claimed "IRE is helpful as long as the chemo works well", it needs stage IV patient to do...

            Hi everyone, I have some questions concerning eligibility of IRE. As far as I know, IRE, as an "assisting" ablation-type therapy, it helps when chemotherapy is working positively on the patient. However, regarding the situations of stage IV PC patients, doctors always claim that IRE is useless to stage IV patients coz the disease is metastatic so local IRE does not help much and it's likely that tumors will appear ...
