    1. Hi , I'm not sure if this will be helpful or frightening, but we do have a forum that talks about Efudex here: It might be useful to read some of their questions and experiences. If you do end up trying the chemo, April's articles will be really good, including this one: We're always here for you to vent and comment about how things are going. It sounds like you've been through quite a lot of pain, which can affect your emotions too. - Nina, Team
