Angry Severe Heatburn with 5 FU

Yesterday my husband began his first round of chemo treatment for a recurring colon cancer that is outside the colon. He is on an at home pump for 48 hours. Shortly after dinner he developed a severe heart burn that caused serious chest pain that continued until about midnight. We had tried Maalox & a 12 hour over the counter tablet. Does anyone else have this problem or have any ideas on treating this side effect? Thank you
