Evidence to Support the Need for Monitoring your Dose of 5-FU Chemotherapy
I have written a blog that describes our journey through my wife’s colorectal cancer over the past 12 months and what I discovered about the way 5-FU is dosed in the UK.
My latest blog post provides a table of evidence to suggest that instead of using a Body Surface Area (BSA) calculation alone, to make up your dose, Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) could be used to adjust the dose to make sure it is the right dose for you.
I have now had a meeting with a senior oncologist at The Christie who tells me I am completely correct about what I have found out and that gives me great confidence in continuing my campaign for change.
If you would like to read about our journey and the evidence I have found to support the need for TDM, please visit my blog page.
