My husband and I have had the strangest day......he had the results back after 6 months of Folfiri (no targeted treatments as he is RAS mutant). We had prepped ourselves for every outcome with millions of questions to follow up with but not this - the tumour in his bowel was 3.5cm and is now just scar tissue on the MRI scan and the mets on his lungs are so tiny (biggest 5mm but most are 1mm) that the scan can't see if they are active cancer or scar tissue too. No sign of anything else.
We were utterly stunned and I had struggled to even think of one question to ask! Our oncologist wants to see him again in 3 months for another CT but no treatment til then. We were told that the chances are that something will start to grow somewhere in him but we just have to wait and see.
Has anyone else had an experience like this? I know he isn't cured or even in remission. This has thrown me totally and I was so geared up to have a new treatment plan that I feel a bit lost knowing we aren't even going to see anyone for months!
Any of your stories are much welcome!
