Re: First folfirinox experience

Hi Theresa, Still here! All ok at the moment, had number 13 Folfirinox last Thursday and admit this week has been a bit challenging. Nausea and tiredness are definitely worse this time but I feel much better today so hopefully on the way up. My US doctor wants me to have radiotherapy now but hospita...

Re: This cruel disease

Dear Keith, So sad to read your post. I really hope Kerry is able to regain her strength over the next few weeks. I know from my own experience Folfirinox is a battle in itself to deal with, the side effects are horrible. Wishing you lots of luck for the next few weeks, Kerry is amazing! Thinking of...

Re: First folfirinox experience

Hi Theresa, In London at the moment, I think you are too? Hope you manage to get on the trial, I’m hoping to pick up some info re trials, new treatments etc tomorrow. I’m looking for that elusive magic wand but I don’t think I’ll find it! Hope you’ve enjoyed your ‘time out’, I’m hoping for a chemo b...

Re: First folfirinox experience

Hi Theresa I’m fine! Just had a few days away in Cornwall, blew a few cobwebs away in the gales! Back on chemo, last one about 10 days ago. Not too bad, bit of sickness for a couple of days, descended into the tired phase now on the way up. Had some stomach issues over the weekend, usual cramps and ...

Re: First folfirinox experience

Hi Theresa It’s a big decision to make, especially when things are going well for you at the moment. I was convinced I wasn’t going to come home! The fact that my hospital were supportive swung it for me and i was able to fund it with my life insurance. I have no regrets, it wasn’t easy but hopefull...

Re: First folfirinox experience
