This is a very short post. Its aim is to very briefly set out my treatment plan, at least as it presently stands.
Week 1 – Chemotherapy
3.5hrs in the hospital having a concoction known as FOLFOX6 intravenously (along with anti-nausea meds).
48hr continuous infusion via pump which I get to have at home from Monday – Wednesday.
Week 2 – Rest
I think by ‘rest’ they actually mean “not feeling like death warmed up” but we’ll see.
Weeks 3-5 – Chemoradiation
The double whammy. Chemo tablets in the morning and evening, and radiation at some stage during the day.
Week 6 – Chemo
Week 7 – Rest
Weeks 8-10 – Chemoradiation
Week 11 – Chemo
Week 13-17 – Surgery at some stage
Review and likely same chemo over again
