I have colon cancer and was told they got it all during surgery but it was a god ised to have chemo anyway to be sure they get all the cancer cells that may have spread even though all my scans are clean. I have had 5 treatments so far. After the third treatment they had to stop the oxyplatin because I now have neuropathy so bad I can barely function.
After the fifth treatment I found myself in the hospital with blood clots in both lungs and am now on coumidan for I don't know how long so treatmet has been suspened this week. I am really beigning to wonder if it is all worth it at this point. I am so emotionally drained I can barley function and I have no support, I am on my own. I have read it can take up toa year for the blood clots to resolve if ever and this may be a permenant problem.
Has anyone else had blood clot and put on coumidan and still went through with the chemo?
Sorry for mispelled words and mistakes, my fingers don't work to good anymore.
