Re: What Helped You Make It Through Folfox Cycles 6-8

Tell them to crank up the pre meds for any nausea, don’t resort only to zofran. As the other poster mentioned if the non cold type of neuropathy is sticking around inform them immediately.

Raw Stomach - Quick Thread

Hi, Currently on the XELOX protocol, dealing with Oxaliplatin side effects are tough but expected. What I can't seem to get a handle on is the feeling of a "raw stomach". I am not nauseous as I want to and can eat and drink what I want. I normally take the XELODA as prescribed about 20-30 ...
