My mom finished her chemo treatment in Apr 2013. She's healthy now with the low-meat diet. But she keeps losing weight and we don't know why. We're really worry and do not know the reason. Someone who have experiences in the nutrition after the chemo treatment can please share with us.
I know your feeling and I understand what you are going through. It's so painful to see our family member suffering cancer, see them losing the energy, weigh, hope and suffering from pain. I have lost my grandpa and my cousin who died of cancer nearly 2 months after diagnosed. My uncle and my mom are having colon cancer. I just consider it enemy of my life. It's taking away many important people of my life.View Thread
I am in a mess and really need your help now. My mom was found having colon cancer, in stage IIIB (tumors have grown through the colon wall and have spread to one lymph node). She had a surgery to remove the tumor and the surrounding damaged lymph node) 2 weeks ago and will have the chemotherapy treatment soon.
I really want to know what is the newest drugs used in chemotherapy treatment for colon cancer. I googled it and it seems that 5-FU is the popular one for colon cancer. But I don't know if it is the newest and the best for colon cancer at the moment???
