folfox-6

Can anyone tell me what to expect with chemotherapy treatment FOLFOX-6? The person is in good health, no cancer after it was removed; however, Dr says it is 'preventive treatment' in case any little cells may show up in a few years and this is to avoid recurrence. PET CT scan is clear of cancer.
I posted a few days ago, could someone please respond as to what to expect, I understand everyone is different, but heads up would be nice. Thanks!

Re: folfox-6

Dear goodfeeling,
I am so sorry about the cancer to your beloved one.
As to the mentioned treatment, unfortunately I cannot say anything about it, cuz my friend practiced virotherapy after the surgery in order to destroy any malignant cell that might appear and plus, improve overall immune system.
I truly hope, that someone who has used folfox-6 will respond to your post.
Warmly, Jasmiina
