Well, once again my oncologist decided today that I am too sick to do another chemotherapy cycle. He was uncomfortable with the fact that I have had excessive diarrhea for a week. So, we are stopping the 5FU + Oxaliplatin + Avastin, and after a two week break I will switch to CPT-11 + Erbitux. We are hoping that I will have less side effects from the new treatment.
Also in two weeks I get a new PET/CT scan to see if any cancer has returned. My last scans were clean, yet this time I'm a bit nervous.
Does anyone have experience with this combination of drugs, and if so can they give me an idea what side effects I might experience?
Any info will be appreciated! Thank you,
