I am beginning to wonder when I will finish radiation treatments.
Since my toxic reaction to 5 FU chemo. each blood test taken, the neutrophils continue to drop, yesterday the level was 0.4, radiation has been canceled again for this week. So far have only completed 2 weeks of radiation,
My radiation Oncologist had said no more 5 FU too dangerous after this last episode. Now the chemo Onc insists I should try 5 FU again, I told them no, they insist there is no other chemo they could use, surely there must be other chemo drugs that can be used. Has anyone else had toxic reaction to 5 FU, what chemo drugs did you use.
Radiation Onc always listens is kind and gentle I really trust him, but Chemo Onc has a one track mind her way that's it.
I did enquire about the DPD enzyme test and was told they have never had to do it.. isn't there always a first time.
Sorry to whine so much but always feel re assured when reading the posts here.
