My mother has been diagnosed with Metastatic Colrectal Cancer which has spread to her right hip and of more concern a huge tumor near her throat. Her oncologist has set her up with Folfiri and using Zometa to strengthen her bones. This is her 2nd bought with Cancer in only a few months. At 71 years of age she has severe neuropathy, throat blisters and mouth sores, severe constipation, bone pain and it's breaking my heart. There are talks of also doing radiation this go around.
I would appreciate any tips/words of wisdom/issues with folfiri/positive feedback to help my mom through this difficult time. As her oncologist said, there is no cure-just treatment.
Thank Everyone and Huggies.
