    That’s excellent news about your brother’s treatment. I start my 1st chemo session on 15th of January (Oxaliplatin + Gemzar) and hope for similar results.

    My brother just finished his first round of chemo with Gemzar+Cisplatin. He received a 10% reduction in one direction and 16% reduction in the other direction, for a total 25% area reduction. Not sure why they didn’t measure the third dimension, but it seems like the volume reduction might be even higher.

    His surrounding lymph nodes also went back to normal.

    We’re not sure how long this we’ll keep up, but it made a very nice Christmas present.
