口服化療藥 抗癌不必綁在病床

癌症化療常令患者退避三舍,不過,隨著口服化療物納入健保給付,部分大腸癌患者發現,化療的痛苦大幅減少,還可以邊抗癌邊工作,不必綁在病床上忍受傳統化療副作用。


吳小姐去年5月發現大腸癌第3期,她今天說,開完刀之後的第1次化療,整整48小時掛著點滴注射化療藥,出院時,五臟六腑非常不舒服,沒有體力工作。她和醫師商量,後來的治療改用口服化療藥,整個情況才改觀。


民國59年次的吳小姐是肚皮舞老師,在化療經驗調查發表記者會上,以舞蹈展現抗癌成果。家人無人罹患大腸癌,她是因血便及腹痛,輾轉就醫檢查才發現罹癌。她提醒國人注意大腸癌威脅,癌症病患不要怕化療。


診治吳小姐的中國醫藥大學,附設醫院大腸直腸外科主任陳自諒指出,院方今年3,4月間對200名3期以上大腸癌病人的問卷調查發現,約有1到2成的受訪患者在化療時想半途而廢,近半數想縮短原有的住院化療療程。


陳自諒說,患者怕癌症,但對化療猶豫不決,想積極化療卻怕半途而廢,想挽回生命又怕化療毀了生活品質,這3個矛盾心理,都是基於害怕傳統住院化療針劑的副作用;一旦改變化療藥物及治療方式,9成以上病人都能完成療程。


健保已將口服化療藥capecitabine列為轉移性第3,4期大腸直腸癌給付項目。陳自諒表示,最新研究顯示,這類患者每天服用capecitabine,外加每2週門診注射鉑製劑,半年療程的抗癌效果,不亞於住院注射化療針劑與鉑製劑。


吳小姐以親身經驗說明,改用口服化療藥後,除每2週回醫院報到外,日常生活一如往常,繼續當肚皮舞老師,許多學生都不知道她是癌症病人。
