Problem is he first was a stage 3 and had surgery to remove bowel tumor . All went well and then later developed liver n peritoneal mets .
irinitecan failed . He's just started oxyplatin with raltitrexed but his cea was 65 before chemo and now after 3 weeks of having first round it's 78! Plus ALP us now 175 . can this mean it's not working. ?
We got told chemo shrinks them and sometimes some even disappear or atleast stabalise them ?
so there's really not much purpose for chemo
would TACE for the liver and TACP for peri help . In the peri there
are 4 7mm nodules
