Can those who posted in this thread tell me which chemo they received and what side effects they had?
My hubby Ron starts his chemo on Thursday, 4/28. His onc already told him he will have to wear a pouch for 2 days. Is this normal for CC?
Also how many of you have had severe diarrhea? The doc told Ron he may be subjected to that. What about premeds for the chemo? Can this be prevented?
I thank you SO much for answering my many questions!!

I will ask Ron's onc Thursday about the HAI pump. I didn't know what it was called. I am GLAD people on this forum have gotten good results with it including you.
I will also post a new thread asking for more info regarding the diabetic neuropathy!

She had complications recovering from surgery, so she got a late start to chemo, and just last month after finishing chemo her scan showed mets to the lungs and spine. She's 38. Doing more chemo. Has anyone else here been through this with success? The statistics are horrifying to me.
