Hi all, had a fabulous time in France, came home had cycle 6, a CT scan & then had another weeks break in Cornwall with my whole family & some fantastic weather!
On our return went through the scan results with my consultant. The four main tumours in the liver have stayed stable, no significant movement either way. The external metastases have not migrated anywhere else & again have no significant movement in size. This is good news at this time. Intra hepatic cholangiocarcinoma has a habit of ignoring chemotherapy & growing regardles, so the fact that it has held the tumours for 6 cycles is fantastic, it has extended my prognosis from the original 6-12 months to 12-18 months. The family were hoping for more. But for me this gives me Christmas & all three of my boys birthdays.
I can only have 8 cycles of this chemotherapy regime as I am now showing signs of toxicity, but already have the next regime agreed and in place after a 4 week washout period.
Keeping myself busy though. Having an extension built on the house & new kitchen. We were always going to do it but never quite had the time or energy. This gives me a project & means I will benefit from the changes too whilst leaving a much better planned home for the boys to live in together.
That's all from me at the moment.
Positive thoughts, prayers & hugs to those who need one.
Take care of you & yours.
