My 68 year old mother was just diagnosed with Stage III, one lymph node of 15 involved. The PET scan for the liver is next week. The oncologist is recommending 5-flurouralil and leucovorin. We don't know what we're looking at...doctor said that the only side effect would be diaherrea. For some reason I think there will be more to it. Please let us know what to expect. Any advice would be appreciated. In particular, what was the energy level like?
