Hi guys, Went to chemo doctor today and he decided to put me on FOLFOX4 instead of all 4 drugs. I don't know a lot about it, other that what they told me today. Can anyone tell me their experiences with it??? I also finally got some pain medicine, so maybe I'll finally get some rest. I have my port put in tomorrow and will start chemo on Thursday, if he can't get it scheduled sooner. He recommended that I not take time to get a second opinion. He painted a very bleak picture for me anyhow. He says they're not sure it's not already in my pelvic because the CT was not clear because of so much scarring and radiation damage. He wants a chest XRay tomorrow to rule out mets to lungs and he did a Blood culture on me today to rule out blood infection(don't know why he did this). I was also running a fever,so he called my surgeon to make sure they would still do the port tomorrow and they said yes. He said I am at a stage 3, or if it has spread elsewhere stage 4. I'm scared. Need some inspiring stories from stage 3 and 4 survivors. I want to be a survivor!!!!
Love, Judy
