My mom has responded extremely well with the gemcitabine(sp)/Tarceva over the past year of her diagnoses. This last CT scan showed the tumors are growing again. He Doctor wants to start a new regiment of treatment with Folfirinox. It's suppose to be better that the gemcitabine according to some of the studies I've read. I was wondering if anyone out there has had this type of treatment and what kind of side effects that come with it. We have been so blessed over the last year with the other treatment. She tolerated the Gemcitabine/Tarceva really well.
She had only a rash from the Tarceva that lasted about a month, and she felt tired and Nausea(sp) only for about 36 hrs after taking the G.
