Howdy All! :-)
I just started Folfox last week and I thought it was going ok....but all these "new" things are coming up and I don't know if they are related? ....side effects??? are really what to think...and of course who better to tell me than those that have lived it!!! God...I'm blessed!!
ok...wierd stuff happening.... mouth peeling skin off gums....swelling gums at times...sore gums and hard to eat at times...this all comes and goes.
I have had heartburn the past 2 days...NEVER get heartburn. anything I eat I get a stomachache and literally belch a mouthful back out....sorry for the graphics. Then I'm good.
The big thing is my butt has been bleeding. Bright red blood like hemroid blood. BUT there is small amounts of blood IN the stool too. Not a lot but enough to notice. I might mention that I am eating an obscene amount of food at this time and it is causing me to poop...A LOT...cause its a LOT of food!! I eat all night long because of these Steroids.....and I have to be on them 2 more weeks so that aint gonna stop soon. You think all this eating and pooping is causing the bleeding or is it FOLFOX related??? Does Folfox cause gastric symptoms. Oh my God I am so full and cant stop eating.....LOL...its really retarded!!!
So...If you are Folfox knowledgeable I sure would appreciate some input! Thanks guys!
