I am a runner and tried to exercise through FOLFOX. Didn’t do great—walked a little but watched a lot of tv! Xeloda was much easier. But if possible for you, I think it’ll reduce bad side effects and enhance immune function.

My comments are:
[*] Try to have the Oxaliplatin run at a slower infusion rate (see comments in link below)
[*] After chemo is finished, have your doctor set up a Comprehensive Survivorship Care Plan for you, and then be sure to follow it closely for the next few years.]

After that I was always super careful about making sure I had plenty of fluids before I underwent any chemo.
