My husband is on a chemotherapy regimen that includes oxy, vectibix and xeloda.
My Question: How long does it take for these chemotherapy drugs to begin to shrink colon cancer tumors? Do tumors respond immediately or does it typically (or sometimes) take many months to see results?
I've been trying to research this question online but have found little information to directly answer my question.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a reliable source of information? Or, has anyone had experiences, conversations with doctors or researchers, etc. that might help me answer this question?
I have talked to our oncologist about this but have found it difficult to pin him down on a time frame.
