Thanks everyone.  We meet with our primary oncologist Monday to discuss a new treatment plan.  Not sure if we'll got with FOLFIRI as recommended or if he will choose to go a different route with FOLFOX, FOLRIFINOX, or something completely different.  For now, we're thankful for the good days we're enjoying between chemo cycles.

My dad was diagnosed in early September with Stage IIIA intrahepatic CCA.  He completed two cycles (four doses) of gem/cis; however, his CT scan yesterday showed significant GROWTH in the four largest tumors.  The consulting oncologist at the medical university recommended 5-FU with Leucovorin and Camptosar.  Has anyone experienced this specific regimen?  If so, what results did you have and what side effects did you experience?
