Happy to report I had my first clean PET scan and last chemo last week. I'm still on my 5FU fanny pack until Monday, but so glad to be at the end of treatment!
My chemo doc is researching putting me on a maintenance chemo like Erbitux. Of course I'm hoping I don't have to do this, but what from he tells me about Erbitux it's only a 2 hour infusion every 2 weeks. It's a lighter chemo in that you don't lose any hair (already lost mine any way), and about the worst side effect is facial and chest acne.
What has been your experience with maintenance chemo like Erbitux?
