just been diagnosed with anal cancer for the third time in three years. I start treatment monday july 26th. My first diagnoses in 07 i had 5fu and mitomycin with radiation for 6 weeks(with a week break for burns)the second time was 09 when it reappeared i was dealing iwth lymphoids and liver. i was given 5fu and cisplatin with two seperate chemoembolizations done on my liver. It was at the beginning of this treatment I left my local hositpal and went to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. I travel three hrs each way(which isnt all that bad) for what I hope is the best treatment. I will need to stay there this time for 5 to 6 weeks for radiation. I will be also recieving chemo drugs Oxaliplatin and Xeloda....If anyone knows anything about this treatment I would love to hear it. The doctors have told me that the treatment isnt near as bad as my previous treatment. (the area they are treating now is outside of my stomach).
