However there is hope... It's been many months since I posted that, and all of that pain has subsided at this point, completely and totally. Currently, I have no pain what so ever actually. Post surgery was for me the most difficult part of my cancer journey. Take it slow, I don't know exactly where he is at progresson wise with his cancer. But in my case, my pains eventually went away, at the time, I didn't think it would.

I had chemo a long time ago. I initially had 5Fu and leucovorin but it hit me too hard and I was heading for renal failure. I changed to 5Fu and levamisole drug no longer used. I had it every Tuesday for almost a year. My onc was very upfront about the areas that it would aggravate. They were mainly the mucous membranes in the mouth and the tear ducts. I had my chemo via a bag and a canula in the back of the hand. To protect my mouth and eyes my onc got me to bring iceblocks to suck on and he supplied an ice pack that I put over my eyes. The cold reduced the blood flow and stopped some of the chemo reaching those areas. It seemed to reduce the aggravation. Ron.
