Good morning, friends. My husband will be 4 weeks out from liver resection surgery tomorrow. His oncologist is going to start chemo on Thursday. 4 rounds every 3 weeks of Xeloda, oxi, and avastin. I did not get to go with him to his onc appt so I couldn't ask questions. does this sound typical as far as time frame after surgery? can the liver handle this? He also asked the onc what his survival stats are now. Doctor said 5 year is 25%. He really didnt know as he doesn't research too much. this really was a slap in the face to him. I kind of knew this but just want to know what you all think. thank you!
