I'm 40 years old, and was diagnosed with colon cancer on the 15th of July. I had a colon resection on the 27th, and the tumor was removed, with one lymph node affected, which makes me a IIIA. I started on Folfox6. I had the oxyalapatin (sp) today, with a pump in a fanny pack of 5FU for 46 hours. I am looking for any ideas, suggestions, etc, on keeping side effects under control. I feel okay today-kind of funny, but not really sick or anything.
I am returning to work in two weeks, as a firefighter. Anyone else out there maintained the ability to do a physically demanding job while taking Folfox?
And if this is what my 40's are like, God help me when I hit 50!
Also, I've received an order of Immunopower--just started looking into it, and went ahead and ordered it. I haven't started taking it yet, because I wanted to let my oncologist take a look at ingredients, etc. Anyone been taking Immunopower and had good results/bad results? Thanks for any answers!
