So far, he has had practically no side effects from the folfiri. He takes 1 gram of ginger daily which I started giving him a few days before his Iri infusion on Monday. The Life Extension protocol says to use it for the three days before treatment but, if I recall correctly, is silent about during and afterwards. Since 5-fu with LV stays in the body for 2-3 days after the infusion has finished, he’ll keep doing the ginger tomorrow and Friday. Basically, the only side effect he has had is fatigue and that only came upon him tonight. So far, so good.
Also, his labs on Monday were phenomenal.
