Dave started treatment on Thursday (and yes, I did drive up from the beach to be with him, I couldn't not!) He tolerated the oxaciplatin (sp?) well, and is on a continuous infusion of the 5FU. So far so good. He's a little tired, but still has a good appetite. In reading the list of side effects I noticed thinning of the hair with the oxy, but no real hair loss with either of the drugs. Is this accurate? We've been very pleased with Hopkins so far. And William, we may be checking in with you about Dr. L in Pittsburgh. Dave wants to explore possibly going up to talk to him. Dr. Molane at Hopkins appears to have trained with him, but Dave wants to find the very best surgeon to do the surgery.
As always, thanks to everyone on this board for their support!
