Topic: John's one tuogh guy!
Hi again to all,
I'm posting under chemotherapy this time becauce John has decided to give it his all and go out fighting. The doctor gave us the hospice talk then told John there was one more treatment he might want to try but the success rate was only about 5%.
John said 5% was better than no percent. It's quite a cocktail. First he gets panitmumab for 1-2 hour then 5FU for 1 hour then a 46 hour bottle of Avastin. After the 46 hours they then gave him 2 units of blood. He hasn't been sick as such just very weak. he won't eat and sleeps about 16 out of 24 hours. Anyone else had this combo of chemo ?
July 5th was his birthday, he turned 53. We had family from out of town and all got together for a party. It was great but he was exhausted and slept all day and night Sunday.
Love to all,
