Finally saw the oncologist today. Will start chemo early next week. I'll get treatment of 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) has been the first-choice chemotherapy drug for colorectal cancer for many years. It is used in combination with leucovorin (a vitamin), which makes 5-FU more effective. 5-FU is given intravenously, and Avastin. I'll have treatment once every 2 weeks. There were be some side effects, but they shouldn't be too bad. we'll see how it goes.
