Chemo survival

You’ll have your weight and bloods tested before each cycle. Be prepared to be refused treatment at some point – your bloods may drop below the minimum threshold.

Many of us struggle at some point during their chemo cycle. I suffered after cycle #5: I couldn’t get my temperature under control, phoned the helpline, and was admitted to A and E for 5 hours. It’s a shock when it happens to you – I felt really vulnerable for the first time.


After my dip, my Folfox dose was slightly reduced for the remainder of my treatment.
