My mom is on FOLFOX and she just started her last round of chemo (had 3 mos, then surgery, 6 weeks of radiation, and now her final 3 mos of chemo). When she was on radiation they gave her a low dose of 5-FU for the entire 6 weeks, but then she had 3 or 4 weeks of rest after radiation ended. During radiation she had horribly dry and cracking palms and feet, and a constant pain in her ears and throat. Now that she just finished the 48-hour 5-FU the ear and throat pain is back.
Has anyone experienced this? Any advice?
