I have just had my 5th FCR treatment and immediately before this my consultant suggested this would be my last instead of going for a sixth. When I next see him in 3 weeks time he said I will then have another BMB and CT scan to determine if the treatment has been successful. I am 63 years old and have weathered the FCR fairly well although it does make me very tired and lethargic for about 2 weeks afterwards. During the last two cycles I have had to inject myself in the stomach for 5 days from Day 10 as my neotrophyls went down to zero. On this last cycle of treatment, I had a burning and aching sensation in the vicinity of my liver for about the last three days of treatment. My quandary is whether to ask for a 6th treatment to increase my chances of a longer remission. I know the FCR treatment is toxic but do not understand what the effects and dangers of it are. Any advice out there please?
