Hi all, I was moved onto Folfirinox today after show no signs of responding to the Gemcitibine. Having gone through what's involved and the possible side effects with the oncologist, I was wondering if people could share their experiences. One of the big questions I have, is how do you sleep during the 46hr iv period.I am getting the port fitted. I have this worry sitting in the back of my mind that I will toss and turn and rip everything out. Some of the side effects seems pretty extreme. I know that different people get different side effects, but if anyone could share their experience and any thing they did do help relieve them it would be most appreciated. Take care everyone Tim
