chemo involved 5-FU, Avastin , Oxaliplatin, Leucovorin, and Xeloda. tolerated well. six treatments prior to surgery, 12 more after surgery
I've done the induction phase and it got me into remission. I developed some nausea and sores on my hands, but the side effects weren't too bad. Lost my hair, but that's par for the course.
