The tumors are shrinking again but they haven’t shrunk enough for surgery.
Dr Eng said that the tumors they measured have shrunk an additional 1cm but that they aren’t in the size realm for surgical removal. The great news is that they are shrinking which means the FOLFOX is working. Big sigh. That, by itself, was a big bet.
Overall, Maggie and Jolie felt that Dr. Eng was quite positive and that she was very impressed with Maggie’s tolerance of (and lack of) the side-effects.
Moving forward, continued treatment. 🙁 But it beats what could have been worse news.
Tomorrow she’ll meet with Dr. Curly who will comment further on her possibility for surgery. But for now, while we’re disappointed we didn’t win the gold we are content with knowing that we are still headed in the right direction.
