My mother started her treatment today. She will receive Cisplatin and Radiation 5 days this week. The 5-FU will be given via an infusion pump 24 hours a day for 7 days. Is anyone on this particular treatment? I don't know what next week plan will be, it's not stated in her chart yet. The nurse says that the doc will see how she is doing before he makes additions to her plan. I know the nurse mentioned Phenergan or Kytril for nausea. I hear that Kytril is better because it doesn't cause drowsiness. I also hear that it is very expensive. The only problem is if she can't tolerate anything on her stomach, the Phenergan suppositories may be better. I think we may get both if possible to be safe. If anyone has comments or suggestion on this treatment plan, I would greatly appreciate it. Blessings to you all and have a great day.
