FOLFIRINOX chemo and blood blisters in mouth

Hello @lbern

While I have not had this particular type of cancer, I have had recurring neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), which is a rare form of cancer. To date, I've had three surgeries.

I'm inclined to agree with Lisa, @lisalucier, that you would do well to seek out a second opinion in this matter. The mouth sores sound very uncomfortable. Do they affect your ability to eat? If so, this is affecting your quality of life as well.

Recurring or metastasizing cancers are difficult both physically and emotionally. How are you doing with these challenges? Do you have a good support group in place with family, friends and other community resources (like a place of worship or community activity group)?

thank you for response. The eating has been difficult, especially since I was trying to avoid some foods that I thought were irritating the blood blisters. I have some awesome former co-workers , family, and friends who have been supportive, which warms my heart. I am so thankful for this discussion board because regardless of how sympathetic my network is, they are not going through what I am and it's helpful to get your responses.and perspectives.
