Fri, 20 May 2011

its not 1%---more like 14% and that may even be a conservative estimate--Your doctor is lieing to you--surprised???

Sun, 13 Mar 2011

My fiancee passed away on 3/7/2011 after her second round of 5FU. The oncologist had used the words "surprised" and "out of the ordinary" on her reaction to the first round because of the amount and severity of her side effects. He still gave her the same dosage for the second round. Ten days later, she was in ICU. Seven days after going to the hospital, she was dead. She was 47 and in incredible shape except for the colon cancer. The doctor told us that she was part of the 1% of the population that didn't have the enzyme to metabolize the 5FU but she wasn't given the test because of the low percentage. With that decision, the woman I loved is no longer here.Her name was Birgit.
