Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but I haven't really felt up to doing much. The chemo isn't working and my tumors have grown. I started last week daily radiation treatments to shrink one of the tumors, which is causing me the most pain. Right now I ahve had 3 out of 10 treatments. I start a new chemo regime on Monday (1/4). Hopefully the new drugs will produce better results. I will taking irineotecan,5-fu and leucorvin one a week for 4 weeks..then I will have two weeks off. I had to have a blood transfusion a couple of weeks ago but may need another one soon between the chemo and radiation treatments. I will try and update my journal more often now the holidays are over with. Hope everyone is doing ok ( teresa222,marie3b) . Here to hoping for a healthier year.
