A friend of the family started chemo this week for tongue cancer that has spread to her lymph nodes. She had mentioned that she was going to be on a pump for 96 hours. I know some of you werre on 5FU for that 96 hours.
My friend was on cisplatin for those 96 hours. Has anyone here heard of that? She is going to a local oncology clinic which I believe my mom went to the same clinic as is no longer with us.
As far as this friend can tell us is that she is on this chemo for the 96 hours then off for 2 weeks then another 96 for five cycles. Any kind of info on this protocol would be greatly appreciated, that I could pass on to her. Thanks
