Oxy - oxyplatanin(sp?) is a chemo drug commonly used to treat colorectal cancer. It is often used with 2 other drugs, 5 FU + Leucovorin (sp?). Together the three drugs are called Folfox.

My Oxi is used with a combination of Avastin and Xeloda (pill form of chemo) I haven't had the other two that Anne mentioned.

I have you beat at 5.7!

We should party together!

When I had just 5FU and no oxy my last FOLFOX cycle (which wouldn't actually be FOLFOX without the OX - hehe), it was a lot better than with the oxy.

That is fantastic news that you've dropped from over 2,000 all the way down to under 6. WOW! I hope you had a nice little celebration yesterday.

As I take my curtsy, and do my little dance.
Thank you all for sharing in my bit of happiness, I indeed did a lot of dancing to the radio, while I made dinner, it was a sight to behold (well, maybe not a good sight, but nonetheless a sight!!!)
And Kathryn, when I visit my brother someday in Brainard, we'll have to celebrate together!!!
Love to you all, and thank you for being here with me.
