Confessions of a FLOT patient

FLOT stands for fluorouracil, leucovorin, oxaliplatin and taxotere (docetaxil) and is the standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy for oesophageal cancer.

After my FLOT treatment, I wrote a little booklet called Confessions of a FLOT patient to describe the experience. It is pretty much a ‘warts and all’ description of side effects and recovery. It also contains some tips on what to do before treatment starts. I hope it will help people to be aware of the type of symptoms to expect.
