    Nausea/Vomiting

    Side Effects

    Mostly diarrhea has a result of both the radiation and chemo (5FU pump). The last week of radiation was a the worst because it was an increase and retargeting plus had it during the morning.

    Decision Point

    Need to know the following. I was lucky and after Nuvo-Chemotherapy and surgery for my Colon/Rectal cancer, the 25 biopsies along with the 10 inches of colon removal with only scar tissue left all tested negative. According to the book Everyone's Guide to Cancer Therapy and my surgeon the follow on chemotherapy would not provide any appreciable help and the chemo to be used could have at least permanent numbness in my finger tips and toes. Should I really have the follow on chemo?"
