Thank you for your kind words.
I’m surprised and happy to hear that your father, in Turkey, will have a ”dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency test” before starting chemo. That is to my knowledge not done in France (where I am) or in USA where most members on this Forum live. I tried the best I could to look at hubby’s 23andme gene test (that we had done before his diagnosis) to find signs if 5-FU would be a problem for him. I did not find huge potencial problems but I could not check everything like in this kind of specific test that your father will be doing.
Best of Luck with the test and with the chemo treatment.
Please come back and let us know how your farher is doing.
Kind regards /L
I wish your father get well very soon. Could I ask you in what hospital he has his treatment?. And what is best ranking hospital for cancer treatment in İstanbul? Thank you.

My marker went up initially after I finished FOLFOX, and I chose to do ADAPT protocol, which is low dose Xeloda plus Celebrex. Some say it has no positive effect in keeping people disease free. I don't know what I think, but I am disease free, so I choose not to disparage it.
