As my husband got allergic to Oxiliplatin, doctor planned to take oral chemo (xeloda) for a month by two weeks in medicine and one week off, and get checked the scan and will only decision for next treatment though recent CT scan showed tumor is growing from 5mm to 7mm. It look weird that it look like chemo is not working and they are not going other option for treatment.
So we are planning to go at mayo clinic for treatment, do any one know a best doctor at mayo clinic, Rochester to treat colon cancer metastatic to lung?
