Anyone have any advice...my best friend, colon cancer, mets to the liver....surgery 12/2011 for stage ii colon...resection done...June cea up to 49 (cea up to 4.2 in March, 'doctor' suggested waiting three months as level was 'probably' due to inflammation...it wasn't)...anyway, chemo started 7/31, second one 8/13..Neupogen shot on Thursday...blood work yesterday shows 'ok' WC, but may not be good by next infusion, next week.
Any one have any words of advice if she has to miss her second infusion?? I will have her on bone marrow broth ASAP ....daily...she's been taking the glutamine 3x's a day (just started that last week).....chemo is the 5fu, oxiplatinum and leuv (?)...the saltz regimen.
Thanking you in advance for your input.
