Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"

My father was just recently diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. His oncologist has given him a good prognosis. He will start chemotherapy soon with 5-FU, Avastin and Oxaliplatin. He is very worried about this. How bad are the side effects? Do these drugs make you very sick? What can be done to lessen any negative effects?
