Has anyone been on the Folfirinox regimin for colon cancer?
I went in for chemo tx #3 yesterday (FOLFOX) and my onc decided to hold the oxaliplatin this time due to severe neuropathy. She said that she would continue the oxy in two weeks in a lower dose. I picked up my itinerary for the next visit and on the way home noticed that Folfirinox has been ordered.
Their clinic is closed today so my questions have been left on an answering machine. Perhaps some of you can help me here. I am confused. I have Stage 3b colon cancer, removed tumor and 2-3 of 14 lymph nodes removed positive along with 1 ft of colon, margins clear, pet clear. Can anyone shed some light on the reasons for this possible treatment. My first thought was that it is a mistake.
Any input appreciated and God bless!
