Thanks for the info about UGT test. I did not know about that particular test and I will definitely look into it. I am sorry that FOLFIRI was toxic to you. Despite what some others may think, FOLFIRI is a hard chemo. I hope Oxaliplatin works better for you. Keep in touch and let me know how you are doing.
Thanks for telling me about this test! Wow, there's so many tests to keep track of. I am seriously overwhelmed. I will definitely mention this test to my onc and see if he thinks I should be tested for Gilbert's Syndrome.
I think my onc would reconsider FOLFIRI only if I keep having the partial bowel obstruction symptoms and I need surgery to remove the adhesions in my small bowel. Maybe he would agree to change course then and consider the ADAPT protocol. He seems pretty firm on FOLFIRI for right now. He did mention maintenance XELODA after the next 4 cycles of FOLFIRI. I will definitely mention the Avastin.
No, I did not get a consult with the Riordan Clinic. I actually met with a Chinese Medicine doctor here in Utah and he recommended supplement choices. Also, beachsunrise had sent me The Moss Report DIY Guide to Research of Conventional Cancer Treatments which was helpful as well.
