Topic: Has anybody had experience with T-GX?
Hi. This is my first post.
My dad, 48, was diagonisd with cholangiocarcinoma in Jan 2007. He quickly started on a regime of Taxotere with Avastin, and Gemzar and Xeloda on alternating weeks. So far, he has had 7 treatments with harsh side effects. The ultimate goal is a liver resection. At his 7 week CT Scan, his tumor showed evidence of dying, but not enough measurable shrinkage for a liver resection. I'm just wondering if anybody has had any experience with this combination of chemo drugs (T-GX) and perhaps how they managed their side effects. We are seeking a second opinion with the Standford Comprehensive Cancer Center as it seems they have experience with cholangiocarcinoma. Does anybody know about the center? This has been a very difficult time and I appreciate reading all the posts as they are both encouraging and informative. Thanks for any info!
