    Procedure or Surgery

    My mom had 1 1/2 feet of colon taken out and continued chemo. A little over a week ago, she also had her right lung resectioned and continues on with chemo. It appears that her oncologist wants the other two nodules taken out of her left lung after her next CT scan.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My mom was told at her first session of chemo that she will lose all of her, but it turns out that her being on Folfox has hair thinning, but no complete loss of hair. Interesting.....I guess it paid to transfer her to another oncologist!
