Starting new chemo regime Irinotecan with 5fu and folinic acid (FOLFIRI)
Following my recent ct scan which has shown an increase in tumours on liver they are changing my chemo from oxiplatin and capecetabine to folfiri via pic line and pump. I still have a lot of pain in hip with bone mets so have been referred to local hospice for pain control.
First of all am worried about pic line being inserted. Does it hurt? And being home alone for a few days on a pump? Does anyone have any advice how to manage this?
