Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

Chemotherapy ineffective

Good day dr I was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer and peritoneal disease/omentum cake in June 2015. I have exhausted all chemotherapy options and my current chemo (Avastin and Irinotecan) proves to be ineffective as well and I developed abnormal liver functions ( ascites and raised bilirubin) too. My recent scan showed: large mass in lower abdomen 157 RT X 114mm AP X 180mm CC and omentum cake measures up to 30mm. My case was reviewed by surgical and gynae in June 2015, and surgery wasn't recommended due to the extend of my disease. I am writing and desperately hoping that you can recommend cyberknife as an alternative treatment for me. Sincerely Nico from Palmerston North, New Zealand
