After installation of port which was easy and comfortable, had my first week of radiation along with 4 days of 5 FU, I had not been feeling good for a couple of day before pump removal, suddenly as my Oncologist put it I crashed, had a severe toxic reaction to chemo. a week of my life I never want to go through again.
To make long story short my Oncologist said no more chemo would be too dangerous for me.
He said MRI and CT showed no other involvement so radiation would be enough treatment.
I start radiation again today for 4 weeks. along with blood tests twice a week.
My first thought when able to think was what I had seen discussed here about the DPD enzyme I plan on asking for this test to be done more for my own peace of mind.
