Hi I wondered if anyone has any experience of Cetuximab being used with 5TH +FOLIFIRI,
My wife is just half way thru her chemo., for bowel cancer plus secondary on her lungs. We were told of the possible side effects of Cetuximab but the reality seems to be much worse, the skin problems are particularly difficult, extreme achne type rash on her chest and face. She is on antibiotics and various creams but they don't seem to be doing that much, her oncologist actually suggested leaving the antibiotics off for a few days!
I wondered if anyone can show some light in the dim and distant tunnel?
Many thanks, Twill
SORRY SHOULD BE 5 FU
