Thank you for your posts - I have read them but things have all been a bit busy over Christmas and New Year! Hope you're all well and had a nice restful festive period!
My husband had his 2nd Oxaliplatin infusion this week. So far so good again, no major side effects, no neuropathy, no nausea etc. Still feeling very lucky as we know how much others have suffered.
In other news, his Oncologist has been part of research seminars over the past few weeks where they have pulled apart studies into the comparison of 3m v 6m of CAPOX adjuvant chemotherapy for Stage 3. She was really pleased to be able to recommend (with my husbanda agreement of course) that his regime be reduced to 3m instead of 6m as the evidence they looked at in greater detail showed that for cases like his, 3m is just as good as 6m!
So he will be finished with chemo by early March
He's very relieved and pleased, whilst I share those feelings, I'm also a bit apprehensive because at the start we were told 6m was better than 3m but I do trust that the oncologist has explored every detail and wouldn't recommend 3m if she didn't think it was genuinely as safe.
So that's where we're at! Hope everyone else is doing okay!
