update mum

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to give an update on my mum...

She has just completed her 4th Folfox6 cycle!!! (8 to go)

I am very proud of my mum, she is being an absolute trooper... Her side effects have not been too bad, alot of fatigue and nuropathy?? She has tingling in her fingers and feet and mouth but has also started getting the tingling sensation in her nose, just wondered if this is a normal occurence??

She is having a CAT scan on monday to see if the chemo is working... as you can imagine we are all a little nervous... The doctors have told my mum that the tumour is inoperable but we are still hoping for some sort of miracle that perhaps the chemo has shrunk the tumour so that they can take it out.

Thanks for reading

God Bless.

Re: update mum


I too wish your mum much success. I know how stressful it can be during the test/scans time. I am at this time waiting results on some scans I had done.

Has your mum had a 2nd opinion regarding her inoperable tumor, possible at a major cancer center. Sometime they can be on the leading edge of new procedures.

Good luck with the test next week.
