Re: Desensitization to Oxaliplatin

Be very observant & tuned into your body during the process. I don't want you to end up like me. On my 13th through 15th rounds of FOLFOX I had a fever for about 15 hours. Number 16 gave me terrible chills, shaking, etc. so onc did premeds, slowed the drip even more, all the usual stuff. Number ...

Re: Elevated CEA and clear scans.

I am so thrilled at the way this turned out for you! For those who don't know much about him, I can share that we became friends several months ago & text or call frequently. He was a rock for me when I went thru my recent ordeal & my kidneys shut down. He is a wonderful person & puts up...

Leaving the hospital tomorrow!!

Doing my happy dance because I get to go home tomorrow after 13 days at the University of Washington hospital!! It's been a rough ride & I was very close to death, but these docs are some of the best in the world. Doc told my hubby that if he hadn't brought me in to ER I wouldn't have lived. Sca...

Hospital adventures

Haven't been around for a while because I've been in the hospital for the last 10 days. When I went for post surgical chemo & had a bad reaction to the oxaliplatin, they sent me home after a trip to ER. Four days later I was so sick that hubby took me to ER, and they slapped me into ICU. My kidn...

Now stage 4

Hello all, I've been away for a while but I do lurk from time to time & think of you all. Time to catch up & maybe pick your collective brains a bit. First, they have recently changed my status to Stage 4. Since February they have been convinced that the problem in my sigmoid was a second pr...

Re: hysterectomy surgery

My total hysterectomy is scheduled for 3 weeks from now. They will do the sigmoid tumor at the same time. Being postmenopausal I don't care, but wonder if it should have been done earlier. Starting to get a little nervous - that's a lot of slicing & dicing. Plus, my hubby goes back to work June ...

Re: Fever with oxaliplatin

I also had fevers (101.4) starting about round 14. Tylanol takes care of it so now I take it before I leave the clinic. Mine only last about 18 hours. Good luck.

Good news!

Well, the scan last week showed very minor shrinkage in several areas but it was enough for both surgeons to give the green light for surgery on June 14th. It will be a total hysterectomy due to the lesion on my uterus and also take care of the tumor in my sigmoid. The only down side is that they al...
