Well, my CT scan in July showed some increased activity in the tumors on my liver. My CEA, an indicator of colon cancer activity, number has been going up dramatically over the last 6 months. This has led the doctor to start me on a different drug that is a one hour infusion every two weeks. The side effects are moderate with an itchy rash over my upper torso, neck and head. I am on anti-antibiotics so I don't get an infection and to reduce the intensity of the rash. I also have to put lotions and medicated lotions on myself to reduce the spreading and itching. Everything works relatively well, I suppose. I still itch, constantly. But I am able to get on with my life.
I had my first CT scan since starting the new medication. I should have the results next week. I am still active. My wife and I hike each weekending at least 4 miles. We try to walk daily, also.
