Chemotherapy and radiation combined - critterbug192

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Anal Cancer. Posted on February 15, 2013 View this journey (10 Experiences)

Had 2 rounds of Mytomicin and 5FU together had one as a shot and wore a pump for a week for the other. Had to have my bloodwork done weekly as I was also receiving radiation treatments at the same time. Definitely caused problems with the WBC but that was taken care of with a shot the first time it dropped and after the second time I spent 4 days in the hospital due to nuetropenic fever. Had 28 rounds of radiation which gave me severe burns in the groin area. Silver Sulfadiazine was my best friend! Had to stop treatments for the burn for a week during which was the 4 days that I spent in the hospital for the fever.
