2 out of 32 lymph nodes affected plus EMVI. Mop up chemo suggested.

All well till 5 weeks later,then vaginal leakage. Theatre 3 :x: times since December for rectal vaginal fistula repair due to radiation burn.

I worry and now suffer stress / anxiety.

January 2019 started oxaliplatin and capecetabine.
1st dose oxaliplatan not tolerated due to 3- weeks of severe neuropathy.
2nd dose oxaliplatan cancelled due to non tolerance, capecetabine only.
3rd dose oxaliplatan reduced to 75% with capecetabine. Neuropathy still poor nauseated.
Waiting to see oncologist in March for update as may be stopped.
Oxaliplatan stopped 13th March due to side effects, to continue Capecetibine only.
