Oncology Day Unit Session Three Capox Adjuvant Post OP therapy and Poll
Had a good oxy infusion session, felt a little bloated and nauseous, but ok when I got up and emptied my ileostomy bag and symptoms settled down. Remarkably the extra two weeks grace off capox while on holiday along with a lower dose of oxy seems to have given me a gentle landing.
Anyway, one more session to go, while this post op therapy has been rather contentious as my oncologist advised that it would not impact on my survival rate, and surgeon said it was up to me and the oncologist, but I felt the oncologist encouraged me to have the four sessions which the Christies clinical lead nurse did too. I feel it will do me more good than harm, have any of you had a similar experience with post op chemotherapy that has neutral outcomes, but just a gut reaction it may help?
