Hi all, I haven't posted much on this board. My husband started Folfox & Avastin in January, had 5 treatments & developed such severe shortness of breath they stopped chemo. O2 did not help & SATS were good. After PFT's,CXR, scan & Pulmononary consult, everyone finally agreed it must be the Oxaliplatin-even though they didn't want to say it was chemo. Now he's been off chemo for 12 weeks & due to start back next week. During this time he also developed a cellulitis around his stoma (Colostomy). Has anyone else had the side effect of shortness of breath from chemo? Has anyone been off chemo this long & did well starting back? Thank you for any feedback.
