Thank you for your prayers Karly. My husband is a very positive person – I'm the one who thinks of all the negatives and it drives him nuts. He is actually still working – commuting to New York City from Connecticut daily to his job. He is also HER 2+ and is infused with herceptin every 2 weeks along with a maintenance chemo. Chemo has been stopped however to get his body stronger for the immunotherapy drug should he decide to go for it — he was very anemic and his oncologist thought it was from chemo. As a result he's eating more. He has a stent as well and it seems to be ok so far. He had malignant tumor in his cerebellum (brain) in late August 2017, was operated on at Yale then had radiation to clear anything that might have been missed. He was at work a week later. It was at that time his personal oncologist was contacted by the oncologist at Yale who said my husband might be a candidate for a trial which is starting now, i.e. 2018.
That's our story so far and I hope both our husbands continue well. I'm thrilled to hear your husband's CT scan showed the tumors shrinking. Is he on folfox plus herceptin? That's what put my husband into remission even though briefly. Fingers crossed Karly and positive thoughts and prayers – we'll get through this.
