Re: How I spent December...and part of January

Fascinating. I didn't realize the DOD was involved in cancer research.

Re: Has anyone had Oxy and Avastin at the same time??

During my first go-round with Folfox, one time a severe snowstorm was forecast and I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to get to the onc for second day chemo which is when I'd get the Avastin. They agreed to give it to me on the first day along with the Oxy. I didn't notice any difference from a...

Re: abcessed tooth

Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and experiences. CRguy, you've really been helpful; don't think there's much difference between me and your patients. I do see the onc on Monday and dentist is just down the hall. Hope they've had a chance to confer. I don't like waiting another 3 months to r...

abcessed tooth

Has anyone here had to contend with an abcessed tooth while undergoing chemo? What was done for it? Right now, I'm on antibiotics waiting for the swelling to go down (not to mention diving into my percocet stash). It's driving me nuts and I'd like the nasty painful sucker out of my head. But I'm won...

Re: Adding to Granny's FOLFOX question

I finished 12 rounds of Folfox4 in February 2010. Sensitivity to cold disappeared after a couple of months. My feet still have significant numbness, my fingers and hands less so. Started Folfox6 October 2011 and the initial symptoms of tingly fingers and feet and sensitivity to cold have returned. N...

Re: Dad gets to see his little girl get married

It's a wonderful thing for your Dad. I know how I felt when I was able to participate in my youngest son's wedding this past August. Congratulations to your family.

Re: Nausea Medications

The info sheet I got with Marinol says it may work better in combination with compazine. Just in case you haven't tried this.
Wishing everyone an end to nausea.

Re: Congressional hearing on drug shortages

Gaelen, Thanks for posting this. I had just heard sound bites on tv which never give the whole story. It gave me some concern since I've just started up on another round of folfox. Your posts are always informative. Thanks again for sharing.

Re: Biopsy? and Folfox 6? 2 Questions

Thanks raym, Michelle, and skifletch for your input. Just got a call from gyn-onc who told me to go ahead with the chemo and that the biopsy is irrelevant due to the new lymph node involvement. Guess I'll be starting with Folfox 6 plus Avastin, and the doc can decrease the oxy dosage if it becomes n...

Re: low rectal tumor

my tumor was very close to the anal verge and apparently a permanent colostomy was imperative. Should that be your case, don't despair. You can adjust to your new body, especially when you think of the alternative. Even if you only need a temporary colostomy, I want to refer you to uoaa.0rg. They ha...
