My dad has come to the end of 4 cycles of Capox, they said hes not to have anymore until it goes to MDT meeting. Scans are next week. Praying for shrinkage Pray tone1

  • Hi  

    Hope he does not have to wait too long after the scan for the MDT, does he have a date when he finds out the results and of course looks at next steps.

  • Me too  
    He has done so well getting to this point .  When does he get a scan ? 
    Now is the time for him to draw breath and allow his body to recover .

    take care ,

  • They initially said 8 rounds but after his fourth they have told him he isnt being prescribed anymore, hes having a liver MRI tomorrow then its going to MDT meeting, they are on a Tuesday so it should be next week. 
    Thankyou for your kind words both of you. 
    Hes feeling a bit of fatigue at the moment so hopefully have a few weeks to recover . 
    Will update when we get news
