Although I have logged on to this site on numerous occasions, I have decided it is time to get more involved and perhaps share experiences.
My husband was diagnosed with an unresectable Klatskin tumor in March 2013. Chemo (Gemzar), followed by Tarceva, FU-5 have kept the tumor from growing, until recently when his CA 19-9 climbed from a little over 100 in June to almost 2000 recently.
He is currently undergoing IMRT radiation with Xeloda, and has 20 treatments to go.
So far, no side effects.
If anyone has any insight into this therapy, comments would be most welcome. It has been a long 19 months but we aren't giving up.
Thank you for any insight you can provide.
