Fluorouracil Mucosal Inflammation Causes and Reviews


Normally, your cells grow and die in a controlled way. Cancer cells keep growing without control. Chemotherapy is drug therapy for cancer. It works by killing the cancer cells, stopping them from spreading, or slowing their growth. However, it can also harm healthy cells, which causes side effects.

You may have a lot of side effects, some, or none at all. It depends on the type and amount of chemotherapy you get and how your body reacts. Some common side effects are fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, and hair loss. There are ways to prevent or control some side effects. Talk with your health care provider about how to manage them. Healthy cells usually recover after chemotherapy is over, so most side effects gradually go away.

Your treatment plan will depend on the cancer type, the chemotherapy drugs used, the treatment goal, and how your body responds. Chemotherapy may be given alone or with other treatments. You may get treatment every day, every week, or every month. You may have breaks between treatments so that your body has a chance to build new healthy cells. You might take the drugs by mouth, in a shot, as a cream, or intravenously (by IV).

The side effects of Fluorouracil are most likely to be minor and temporary.InternationalDrugMart

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.
