My husband just met with the oncologist yesterday. He has completed 2 FOLFOX teatments and has had the normal side effects but the Dr. informed us that his liver enzyme were elevated. He did not say which one nor the actual count (said it was not real high). He was on a high dose of Xeloda before surgery without any concerns relating with blood counts. I have looked at many threads on this but I'm wondering which FOLFOX drug is usually the culprit of this. It does not look like "normally" this is a sign of progression of cancer and we really have no reason to believe his cancer has spread. He is stage IIIa with post surgical path reports only showing 1/22 lymph nodes involved. If anyone could help me on this I sure would appreciate it.
