Hi....and welcome. I am glad that you had a successful surgery and are able to begin chemo so soon afterward. As you can see below, I was on the 12 rounds of FOLFOX. To this point, four years later, it has been a success. Everyone who takes FOLFOX will usually have some differing side effects. But generally, you should prepare yourself for cold sensitivity, maybe some nausea, a decrease in appetite, some neuropathy and feeling more and more tired as you have more rounds of treatment. For the most part, I was able to continue my two-mile walks each day (even with the pump), especially during the first 6-7 rounds. Then maybe 4-5 times a week the last 5-6 rounds. I recommend you staying active as best you can. Food will begin to taste like crap. I described it as mud-covered styrofoam.
But you can get through it ! Stay positive, and don't get too ahead of yourself. Just take each treatment as it comes, and you will do fine. There any many others here who also had FOLFOX. If you have any questions, just let us know, and someone is almost always here with an answer or explanation that will help. Andre
