Re: ascites

Exercise helps too. I've been dealing with pain in hips and legs. Haven't been getting enough exercise. My ankles are swelling quite a bit and I take 40 mg Lasix daily. I'm with VOXX. Not changing my eating habits very much.

Re: What to drink? Everything tastes metallic

Ginger Ale was tolerable. I probably drank Gatorade more than anything. As far as food, salty foods tasted more normal. Spicy not good.

Re: Mets to Omentum?

If you are still on Vectibix try antibiotics for the rash. It cleared mine up. I took Keflex.

Re: Side effects

I didn't but I believe that is one of the possible side effects. You need to call oncologist or nurse immediately. The eyes are something you don't want to take a chance with.

Re: Day 1 FOLFOX with throat issues.

My first treatment I went directly from it to McDonald's. Wouldn't you know the first thing I did was take a big swig of Coke. The sensitivity was already there. Didn't make that mistake again.

Re: Potassium
