My mum has been using Folfox and Avastin after discovering her mets in lungs. She is doing well so far, and the 8th round has been finished. Her did developed some neuropathy side effects like numbness of her arms but the effects are reversible. Side effects are obvious in the first week after chemo, then better day by day. She also losses her appetite after coming back home from chemo but we prepare soup for her with other food so she can eat better.
For neuropathy side effects, we have prepare handwarmer for her use to reduce the effects. And do not let her touch any cold or cool objects after chemo.
Hope my experience is helpful. God bless you and your family, especially your mum.
