    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My husband began chemotherapy Dec 10, 2012. He is on Folfox with Avastin. It hit him much quicker this time then it did his first bout with cancer. He is having nausea, mouth sores and exhaustion. It is so hard watching someone go through this.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
