Warm best wishes for the new drug for you!!
Less side effects than FOLFOX and FOLFIRI. Fatigue on infusion day and feel better by Day 2. Infusion is short and no bottle, which makes a big psychological difference for me. Some constipation. Very manageable for me, but I also handled the chemo pretty well until neuropathy set in.

In the meantime, could your onc continue working with your insurance to try getting it approved for off-label use? Then perhaps dosing would be more under the prescription of your doctor. My onc was able to get this approved for me off-label. I received the 200 mg flat dosing. I was only on this drug a short time, and to me there was no comparison to chemo. They could have been infusing me with saline for all I could tell.
Best wishes, whatever your decision!
