I have a dear friend in a Southern California hospital being treating for 5FU toxicity either due to DPD deficiency or overdosing of 5FU. Severe toxic symptoms appeared after 2nd chemo treatment, then endured 3rd chemo treatment, then admitted to hospital one week later. Has been in the hospital now for 2 weeks, not getting any better (constant diahrea) and growing weaker each day. Need referral to expert(s) who treat or are knowledgable about ongoing toxic symptoms to 5FU or any other advice regarding treatment and survival. Thank you.
