I have started erbitux (immunotherapy) weekly and irinotican (chemotherapy) everyother. I hate the pimply rash and am very fatigued but I don't miss the 5FU (FU being the key word) it didn't work for me and I hated the fear of long term neropathy.

Easy to Do: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
