Topic: Irinotecan and Cisplatin - Any experiences

Hello everyone -

My dad is starting a new combination on Monday of Irinotecan and Cisplatin. He has been relatively stable but there is some progression in his lung metastasis after ~ 10 rounds of Gemzar and ~ 7 of Xeloda (both on their own).

If anyone has any experience, pointers on side effects or any other recommendations while under this regimen please let me know.

Thank you and best of luck to everyone.

Thanks!
