Hi empt I'm Bob and I too have stage iv colon cancer; and our diagnosis seem to be the same. My cancer had spread to lymp nodes and outside lining of my stomach. I had surgery in Jan. of 2011 and started chemo in Feb. My chemo was folfox .a combo of oxialplatin,lucorvoran,and 5fu. Please forgive the spelling of these drugs,but I'm sure you will know what I mean. I was given treatments once every two weeks, for 12 weeks totaling 24 weeks. I was informed of the possible side effects by the staff at the hospital and given tons of literature about my treatment. Side effects for myself have been fatigue,mouth sores,and neuropathy (numbness of the hands and feet). I believe it is important to remember that side effects vary in each individual and are dependent on many factors age general health ect. Despite the side effects which we learn to deal with life is good. In your post I see you also talk with our greatest healer,GOD. I've found this to be the greatest of all in my journey with this disease for His direction is the greatest and faith truly does replace our fears. Good luck with you journey and may God bless!
PS had a cat scan in mid Oct. no sign of cancer,thank you God and all the staff at Sara Bush Cancer Center here in Mattoon Il. they are truly the greatest!!!
