Topic: Does 5-FU work just as well as Xeloda?
I was just wondering if anyone knew if 5-Fu worked as well as Xeloda. Lauren's oncologist seems to favor Xeloda and I don't understand why. Xeloda gives her a bunch of problems and 5-Fu was a breeze. What do you think? She is also on Gemzar at this time. She was on Oxaliplation with Xeloda, but had the allergic reaction to Oxaliplatin and has since been put back on Gemzar. Thanks in advance for your input.
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.
