40 y.o. male, 6 week post-op for Stage II colon cancer (with some lymphatic involvement but not nodes possitive). Will be receiving 5FU, but one oncologist recommended weekly IV infusion in office, while another strongly recommended continuous infusion through an implanted pump (involving placement of central line). The latter said there is higher survival and lower side effects. Anyone had the continuous pump? Any suggestions?
