Hello Everyone!
I am doing my own amateur *research* on the types of medicines and chemotherapy people have had or are currently taking. If you wouldn't mind giving me the names and even the dosage, but I will settle for just names of meds, I would really appreciate it! Please dont worry about spelling :-) You can email me here or leave a reply to this post. Thank you very much for your time and help.

Hi, Michael -

First, let me say congratulations on being a 7 year winner!

Next - my chemo consisted of 4 cycles of 5-FU and Leukovorin. Once a week for 4 weeks on/2 weeks off. I understand that's pretty much a standard regime.

Good luck with your research.

Stay well.

28 session of radiation; 5FU/LU on Fridays, three weeks on, one off for 5 months. Campasine for nausea. A lot of praying. A lot of support from a son and a friend. A lot of reading and soul searching.

Hi Michael, I had stage 2 colon cancer which was discovered March 2003. My treatment is similar to Spongebob's. I have the same medication 5FU and Leucovorin, but my cycles are once a week for six weeks with two weeks off for a total of 24 treatments. My IV drip usually takes only 45-60 minutes so it is pretty quick. I have had 14 treatments so far, only 10 more to go. Continued good luck to you. Regards, Arlene
