Wow, is your Mom one tough cookie for going through eight cycles of that!! My daughter's oncologist said that most people, if they are going to have a reaction to Oxaliplatin, will have it the 6th or 7th treatment. Lauren had an allergic reaction to it on her 6th time. I think her doctor was going to try for eight treatments, but she didn't make it to that. I am not sure of the average number. Maybe Percy has the answer to that. I am hoping for great scans for your Mom and maybe the doctor has another chemo in mind. Take care.
Hoping for a miracle for my daughter, Lauren.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
