My mum has just started her 10 rounds of Folfox today but having allergic response that her throat enlarged. Onco said this is a very serious side effect that Folfox is no longer an option for her.
The onco gives us a chemo break for 2 months as my mum's CEA is doing good (plz refer to my signature). We are worried as her CEA rose before when she received a 1 month break.
There are two questions for us:
1. Is it normal for my mum to take such a long break now as she had just finished 10 rounds of Folfox instead of standard 12 rounds ?
2. Folfiri will be use after 2 months break. I have heard that folfiri has side effects such as losing hairs and diarrhea. It is very worrisome as my mum is now using stoma. Any suggestions on this drug?
Thanks for any comments in advance.
