Thank you to everyone who has responed to my first message yesterday were I just told a brief stroy of my situation. I have read alot of the other messager and notice there is alot about diet changes. Did your Drs. suggest this? Something you read? I was just wondering since I have never been told to change by diet habits which are probably not the best. I only usually have nausea for a couple days now since I have not used my pump since July. Also there was mention of liver resection. Can anyone fill me in on this. I have liver mets inumerable when first scan was done now with last CT scan being in July 2003 a 90% reduction and PET scan suggesting they were dead. Should I ask my Dr. about a liver resection. I have so many questions for my Dr. nest time I see him. Also what is this oral med. that everyone talks about Xeloda(?) I have never been on that. I also notice alot of people on Celebrex. I was given Vioxx which I know is similar but is one suppose to be better than the other. And can anyone tell when the chemo will end? I started doing it every other week from Sept 2002 to July 2003--Day 1 oxcal,5FU pump for 22 Hrs.,Day 2 Leucovorin 5FU push and another pump of it for 22 hrs. Now I go every 4 weeks day 1 oxcal and 5FU push Day 2 Leucovorin and 5FU push. Dr. is suggestiong going back on the pump. Well I know all the questions are alot but I feel like I have gained so much knowledge in the last day and do not know what to do with it all.
