A few months into the journey now for colon cancer with liver mets. 

I am trying to educate myself, because i believe it helps when trying to advocate your care. 

Does anyone know or can anyone shed any light on Chemo regimens? For example, why are some people put on Capox/Folfox but then some people are put on Folfiri/Folfirinox. 

What determines the Chemo combination they use?
