Topic: Suspending Treatment for week (mid cycle)
Hello everyone -
My dad (diagnosed 5/06) came to visit us from Mexico City and his Xeloda was lost with his baggage. Money aside, which the airline is covering, he has not taken the chemo for 4 days now and unless we can get some pills in the US (a lot harder for a tourist than you would think) he will probably have to suspend until the 9th. Prior to the loss, he was in the 6th day of a 21 day cycle (a week between cycles).
Dad spoke to his team of Dr's and they all indicate it's not a huge deal to suspend for a week but I'm still uneasy. I understand neoplasic progression is varaible and chemo in CC might not even be all that useful but so far we have been somewhat stable.
Maybe it's not a huge deal but I would like to know if this is less important than I'm making it to be.
Thanks and best of luck to all!!
