Dears, following the second Folfiri treatment (there were 6 Folfox sessions, but due to new mets in the liver, the chemo was switched from Folfox to Folfiri), my mom is having fever and pain in her lung when breathing. She hasn't had any fever until now. Nor has she had any issues with her lung. Has anyone had similar side effects following Folfiri?
We're supposed to have a CT scan after the third Folfiri treatment, which is coming up next week. But this fever and lung pain are scaring me. Should we try to get the CT scan earlier? This would mean scanning her after 2 treatments of Folfiri (instead of 3). Perhaps it would be too early for the liver mets to show any response. Do you have any advice?
