I think the oncologist used this drug on my wife cerebral palsy in retaliation because I did not give the okay for the oncologist to use a toxic drug that was not FDA approved. Her oncologist is from India and is very friendly but that did not fool me.

My diagnosis was anal cancer with possibility of spread to a lymph node. Given radiation, fluorouracil and another drug via a port over a week's time. Developed nausea and severe chest pain. Diagnosed by multiple doctors as heartburn or gastritis; ended up in hospital. Drug removed, given nitroglycerin and aspirin with immediate pain relief. Chemo oncologist said reaction was heart related and refused to administer second round of chemo as this could cause a heart attack. Pt scan looked clear, but cancer returned to other lymph nodes the next year. Radiation and cysplatin were the treatments. Clear scan followed. There are no other drugs to use if cancer returns. Certainly wish there was more research for this type of cancer. Cannot find any new studies. Perhaps because this is rare, no one is working on another cure. Original cancer site is healed, but possible spread is unknown. I am using natural healing methods and prayer to ensure that I remain healthy.

My husband wore a pump with this medication going through his system 24/7 for a week. By the 3rd day, he began to develop swollen lips. Then his tongue began to swell and started getting white splotches on it. His throat began to swell shut. We called the dr.(oncologist) and he immediately prescribed an anitibiotic. It seemed to help, but suddenly, my husband's lips,& tongue throat got much worse. We went to the dr. on the following Monday, and he could not believe the condition of my husband's mouth. He then prescribed an antifungal medicine, and things have gotten worse. He is going into the hospital tomorrow, as he is unable to drink ANYTHING, and it is all because of the 5 FU as this drug is known. Yes, most people will have some mouth soreness, but the reaction my husband has had, has set us back about 3 weeks. It is horrible to sit back and watch this happen to my husband. He is such a trooper, and I just can not sit back and not voice my experience with this drug! Discuss this drug THOROUGHLY with your dr. Make sure that you and your loved one research this drug before consenting to the use of it! It is not a wonder drug, for sure! I hope this helps someone else before the drug is used! Thanks for reading this. Research! Research! RESEARCH!!!!!!!

I want to get preg. as soon as possible. My doctor has started me on infertility pills but my husband is on this medication for colon cancer. Will this effect my baby if I get preg. after he has been on this treatment for about 6 months. Please let me know as soon as possible. We conceived a baby after 12 years of trying and she died two days before her due date. I would use a sperm bank but can not afford that plus the doctors fee. We want a baby more than anything in this world but do not want to harm the baby. If anyone knows about this please let me know. Thank you, Julie [email protected]
