Re: stage 4 long time survival without operation

Update on my husband. His latest scan shows shrinkage of all liver mets, GGT are much lower and his CA 19.9 is now down to 200. He is currently on Taxol as Gemzar didn't work anymore.

As he feels quite tired and had infection ( cleared with antibiotics), he will have 2 weeks on and one week off instaed of 3 weeks on and one week off.

So, rather good news!

This is very good news indeed, and its great to share good news. Well done to your husband. The chemo is clearly working well.

Wishing him all the best as he carries on with the chemo.
