I was just told by "chemo club" that Folfox 6 Protocol is 12 rounds, 24 weeks, NOT 8 rounds, 16
weeks as I had previously been led to believe.
Just "recovered" from round 7, which was the worst so far in respect to side-effects, 'cause they took me off Oloxi-(anti-nausea) and gave me
reglan-(was getting Oloxi-(SP?) and decadron), and this combo causes lots of constipation w/some nausea and no vomiting. Without the Oloxi, I had
nausea AND vomiting day 1-6, along with assorted other side effects..I'd rather have nausea and constipation w/o vomiting,so I guess it's back to the Oloxi/decadron next time.
So far I've tried Kytril, Zofran, Emend & Avitan in combo with the Aloxi & decadron, but everything except the Avitan seems to add to rather than allievate side effects;
Anyone on this protocol have any suggestions?
Really getting tired of this.. Bud
