I've been on Gem/Cis, two weeks on/one week off/ for 7 months and am now in Cycle 13 - I've had very few side effects during this whole period - I've only had one round of Constipation/Diarrhea which lasted for a little over two weeks and moderate fatigue from time to time - No loss of appetite and no weight loss - So, as I'm sure you are aware, chemo affects everyone differently and everyone has to deal with their situation on an individual basis - Adequate hydration during chemo is, of course, absolutely paramount -
FYI, I'm 81 years old and was diagnosed with Stage IV ICC in August, 2013 - The chemo has apparently stabilized my tumors and they have not been reduced in size or enlarged as a result of all this chemo so liver resection has not been an option -
Good luck -

A new discussion board experience is coming this September!
After 10 years, we're upgrading our discussion board to a new modern system. The new forum will be easier to use, mobile-friendly and loaded with new features! We'll be taking all of the existing posts and users over to the new board, you won't have to do anything. If you have any questions, we've started a thread here to discuss.
