Re: Folfiri and Nausea

Hi Tater, when I was on FOLFIRI I had a time with nausea. Please check with your oncologist first but Nauzene and Emetrol helped me more than any prescription meds did. They are both over the counter. You can buy them on Amazon or Walmart. My Walmart was out of stock regularly though. Hope you are ...

Re: Reoccurance Questions/Help

Hey Tater, I am sorry to read of what you guys are going through. It definitely sounds like a unique situation, one I have not read about often on this blog. The only suggestion I have is to seek an opinion from a major cancer center. Not sure where you guys are located and how close they are to yo...

Reoccurance Questions/Help

So my wife had been NED for awhile. Early this spring we started to notice some narrowing around her right ureter. The CT scan said that it was scarring. During the summer her CEA kept rising but still within normal. In October we received the results of the PET scan and it showed uptake at this are...

Re: My hair is falling out.

So my wife starts FOLFIRI on Monday. She saw some thinning with FOLFOX but she was also severely anemic at that time. I guess reading this post it is true that hair loss is a bigger side effect with FOLFIRI than the other?

Re: Thoughts on Stage IV...

What a great topic. My wife was stage 4 at dx. Dr. Google depressed me and made it hard to understand and made me think of too many what "ifs". Forums like this one were good because it gave me hope when I say all of the stage fours say how many years they had been NED. Its interesting bec...
