Hi, my husband was diagnosed 5/07 and was on Gemzar all last summer. In his case, it did make him feel better at first, but then after many weeks, he began to feel worse. He is one that didn't have any shrinkage of the tumors from Gemzar. Some people have very good results with it. I also noticed mention of so many other drugs and procedures, I began researching. Charlie was also given the 3 to 6 months speech and he's still here 14 months later. I personally feel that only God knows the time and we should not listen to the doctors on that one. We went for 2nd and 3rd opinions and chose what we thought was the best of those and never looked back. Since then, he's had chemo, chemo and more chemo, radiation, chemoembolization, radio frequency ablation and over half his liver removed in 11/07. Unfortunately, tumors have recurred in his liver. This is just our personal situation, but we've never regretted any of it and we keep battling this awful cancer and moving on. A good positive attitude and a sense of humor also help tremendously. Charlie's opinion is that he would not be alive today if he would have stayed on just the Gemzar indefinitely. Now, we're starting to discuss the issue of how much more drugs and treatments can he have and not compromise his quality of life? I don't mean to scare you in any way, just sharing what we've experienced. Everyone reacts so differently to all the treatments. I wish you the best!
