this is my 4th attempt to post..here goes; just finished my 8th round of folfox 6, and Onc had
originally told me that it would be 8 rounds, 16 weeks..they then informed me that it could be as much as
I asked for a break, and they took me off for 3 months! My CT shows "3 or 4" spots left on lungs out of an
original 20+..they instructed me to get a CEA once a month, and if it rises, consider CT and/or re-starting
chemo. If no rise, a CT is scheduled in August, then decide what to do.
I'm a little concerned about the length of the break..has anybody experienced anything similar? They didn't
tell me that I had to flush the port monthly-found that out accidently by talking to another patient.
Input from my on-line extended family please... Bud
