Hi Val. I was diagnosed last Oct with stage 4, I had 19 rounds of chemo and my main tumour and liver mets have almost disappeared. I also completed a immunotherapy trial in September.

Re: First folfirinox experience

Hi Kate, I am so pleased that you are keeping well and on the up. I had round 13 today, round 12 was horrid so I took an extra week to recover. What's the reasoning behind the 'no' radiation? Yes Ruth did pass on your number, are you around tomorrow for a chat? Theresa x
