New health update
I saw the oncologist yesterday. He felt that the peripheral neuropathy was getting so bad that we should drop the oxaloplatin for the moment, so my treatment tomorrow (course 8) will consist of 5-FU and folinic acid. Otherwise he was pleased with my progress and ordered another scan for after course 9. Next week the colorectal multi-disciplinary team will discuss my case with a view to thinking about a second look laparotomy to see if the primary around the ileo-cecal junction is now operable.
