Day #6 today and I'm very slow to rebound, with this being just the first cycle - yikes! But it really is easier than FOLFOX.
I have still not had any of the famous diarrhea. In fact, I've had constipation trouble. I had a little movement during infusion, and a little yesterday, but that is all.
Yesterday and today I've had very severe stomach pains. Today I started having lots and lots of gas. (I remember that happening a couple times on FOLFOX, but not every time.) Anyone else have gas trouble and constipation on FOLFIRI rather than diarrhea? What about the bad stomach pain? I am on Avastin too if that might make a difference?
