Effectiveness of Irinotecan post 5FU
I have stage 4 bowel cancer with secondaries on the liver (the primary doesn't show on any scan). I've just completed x12 weeks of 5FU treatment but a scan shows that the liver tumors have continued to grow significantly and multiply. The only other option my oncologist has proposed is to try Irinotecan although it carries a high risk of diarrhea (I'm a T8 Paraplegic wheelchair user so severe diarrhea would be a real problem). Does anyone have experience of Irinotecan working when 5FU hasn't and/or the side affects of Irinotecan. thanks in advance.
