my husband is on 5-FU infusion pump for five days plus daily radiation for 6
1/2 weeks, and another five-day infusion in week #5.Today is day 3, and he is
still feeling fine; we are waiting for the other shoe to drop. He has two
biliary stents with external tubes. Diagnosed two months ago thougth a
routine LFT. Developed jaundice and pruritis. Had external bags but now
draining internally. I am told to try to be positive, but from everything I
read, this won't do much. He is 65 and was otherwise in good health.
