Chemotherapy - Callapt

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on January 10, 2012 View this journey (7 Experiences)

I began chemo thearapy before I could drive to my appointments, due to my surgery. I had a round of chemothearapy that was 6 weeks, with a treatment each week. I had Lucovorin (SP) and 5FU. I then had a concentrated dose of chemo when I started my radiation treatments that lasted for 6 weeks, daily for 5 days with weekends off. I then went back to chemo and only lasted about 4 weeks before my white blood cell count prohibited my chemo for a couple of weeks. I had chemo again for 5 weeks before my white blood cell count stopped treatments again and then I went for the last 6 weeks of chemo and made it through. All in all this covered about a year from surgery to the end of my chemo and radiation treatrements. I worked through most of the chemo and radiation when I could. My treatments were usually on Thursday and I'd be off work on Friday Sat and Sunday. I'd go to work when I could. My company was great allowing me to work when I could and being off when I couldn't.
