5FU monotherapy didn't work for my dad. Cancers have spread all over his lung, lymph nodes and one on liver. The oncologist will give my dad a regimen of 5FU, avastin and oxaliplatin at 70% for all 3. After 3 months, remove oxaliplatin and stay with 5FU and avastin. So 3 months with 3 chemo follow by 3 months of 2 chemo and repeat.
Any advise on what to look for to see if it works? Or anyone try this 3 combinations?
I hope everyone is doing well !!
