    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I had Oxiplatinin, Avastin and Xeloda. The first couple of times the first couple of days would be bad, after the third time, I was coming home and doing housework. I hated the problem with cold, as I loved my ice cold coke cola's but believe it or not I got used to drinking warm water, although I desired ice water, this would last about 7 days for me, for a lot of people it lasted only 3 to 5 days.

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a one day 9 1/2 surgery with three different surgeons, first the liver surgeon took out 36% of my liver, then the colon surgeon took out 2 feet of colon and then the urologist surgeon took out a piece of ureter, put in a stent and sewed me up. 7 days in hospital, felt bad that week, felt bad the next week, doing housework the 3rd week.

    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree
