How nice that he is tolerating it so well. My husband did not experience any side effects at that point. Hair started to thin, but that was it. He does Folfiri. Even now, the side effects are quite minimal. He has done 24 sessions. If he refuses his decadron (steroid), he will feel nauseous. This time he took the steroid and was fine. Glad all is well for your Dad.
