Re: Foods to avoid during chemotherapy

Hi All, What were the foods you have been told to avoid during chemotherapy, specifically during FOLFOX? We all know about the negative effects of chemo on the body, how it can not only kill the cancer cells but also the healthy cells in the body thus impairing one's immune system and disabling it ...

Re: Foods to avoid during chemotherapy

The only restrictions I can recall are raw fruits and veggies & milk due to compromised immune system during chemos.
Bananas were ok though.
I found light foods like curd-rice easy to handle.

Re: Stage 4 - liver mets disappeared

You probably fall in the category of medical miracles.
I can only recommend that you should do all you can to help your body.
Exercise, go on non animal - low fat diet ( follow Dr. Mcdougall ) , drink tons of fresh juices ( Chris beat cancer) , meditate and stay positive and happy.

Re: FOLFOX failed

Hello
Sorry to see you here.

Capox and various other chemos failed in my case. Finally immunotherapy worked for me.

I am not from US so can't advise cancer centres to go to but definitely try to get opinion at a major centre.
Best of luck.

Re: 23 years old with stage 4 colon cancer

Stay strong.
If positive then something will work out.
Young ppl are able to recover from and withstand harsher treatments.
As suggested by many, do get urself tested for msi status as well as Lynch syndrome on top priority.
Totally different course of treatment based on results.

Re: MSI or MSS

Stu
You are doing great work there.
Does anyone know of any advocacy group for approval of Keytruda / Nivolumab for CRC in Canada.
Health Canada seems to be sleeping in this regards.

Re: Anyone with peri mets who survived?

Hi I had peri mets but was considered unfit for HIPEC as mets were there in lungs and liver too. Fortunately, immunotherapy worked for me and it seems peritoneal mets are gone. As per my understanding traditional Chemo doesn't work too well for peri mets as there is not a lot of blood supply in that...

Re: Switching back to Pembro

Great news Plastikos, Even my oncologist is increasing duration between fusions by a week every 3 months or so after a year of infusions every 2 weeks. It started with once every 2 weeks. It is now at once a month. Great to hear that Henry. Looks like we are kind of in the same boat right now. If i...
