My mother has been on chemo FOLFOX since July. They tried to introduce Avastin several weeks ago with the FOLFOX but she had some face swelling so they stopped it. They said they may try again separately from FOLFOX after her rounds are over (she has 4 more) or possibly introduce on the off weeks with FOLFOX. A few questions:
1. Has anyone had this reaction (face swelling- no problems breathing) with Avastin?
2. If so, what did the onc do?
3. Has anyone had Avastin alone after FOLFOX?
4. Has anyone had Avastin on the off weeks?
thanks in advance
