Welcome to “Not My Cancer”, the new home for all things Eric and his battle to fight Rectal Cancer. Excuse us as we get things settled in here, this location is new to us.
Now that surgery is over, people have asked what’s next. Eric has a total of 18 weeks of treatment, 3 weeks of that is already done. This series of 6 rounds is 50% stronger than prior to surgery and longer each time around. He will take 3000 mg twice a day for 14 days straight and then is off for 7 days. Since the tumor was removed, there is no more radiation happening.
This Tuesday Eric will begin his second round of oral chemo. He did pretty well during the first round although in the days after he was feeling nauseous and tired.
Eric has been trying to walk daily and at the same time, he is broadcasting it through Facebook Live. It’s being cross-posted to the FB page, Eric’s Pesky Rectum for all to participate in.
We ask that you share our GoFundMe page https://www.gofundme.com/2pbadfhc with people.
