Treatment update for 7/1

Hi all,

I received news that my chemo will begin on Tuesday 7/7. I’ll need labwork done the day before each chemo session to check my blood cell counts. They will give me drugs 1, 2, 3 consecutively at the treatment session and then send me home with drug 4, which will pump for 46 hours. At that point, I’ll head back to the office on Thursday for the removal. They’ll then show me how to remove it so I don’t have to keep going back 2 days after treatment for removal.

For the science nerds, here are my meds:

  1. Irinotecan
  2. Oxaliplatin
  3. Leucovorin
  4. Fluorouracil

Love you all and will post another update when I get more information.

-Matt
