About six weeks ago, I was told that there would be no more chemo for my metastasis to the lung and ribs. This threw me into a deep depression with extreme insomnia. However, at the next monthly visit, my medical oncologist offerred a series of Methotrixate infusions. Received one. The following week, I was running a fever. So I got antibiotics rather than chemo. Received the second infusion today.
I've been told that a good possibility is mouth sores, something I'm not looking forward to. Has anyone gotten mouth sores from chemo rather than from radiation? Has anyone survived mouth sores without a PEG? Anyone survive Methotrixate?
Looking for information. Rick.
