His oncologist is at Greenwich Hospital and is affiliated with Smilow cancer center at Yale and Weill Cornell and Columbia Presbyterian in NYC.
Hi, angelaG! Sounds like my husband is where your husband was. Do you know the chemo drug he was on? My husband hasn’t started his treatment yet. Thank you!
So glad to hear your husband is doing well!
He was on oxalyplatin and 5fu along with a targeted therapy called herceptin. He has continued with maintenance chemo since early this year – it’s a low dose of chemo and herceptin minus oxalyplatin.
Oxalyplatin is a tough chemo. Some tolerate it well, others don’t – my husband was somewhere in the middle and finished only 6 rounds rather than the intended 8.
I wish you and your husband all the luck in the world.
Where did he go for treatment?
