Re: A lighthearted post

It's funny too that a lot of people have favorite meals with chemo, mine was biscuits and sausage gravy, and that was because it was one of the only things that tasted like food during chemo. I almost forgot how messed up my taste buds got.

Re: Question about chemo and blood work

Yes, low WBC is one of the main side effects of FOLFOX, my WBCs were particularly sensitive and would nose dive to low numbers almost after each treatment after the sixth round.

I am so sorry to hear about your predicament. I wish your husband well. Please find a doctor team that will fight for your husband's life. The good news is your husband is young, I hope he fights and beats this.
