Topic: Help..Chemo with Gemsitabine and Cisplatin no longer working
One of my family members has just completed 10 months of treatment with gemsitabine end cisplatin.
Yesterday the MRI results showded that the cancer is resisting this treatement and new lesions appeared in the liver; the main lesion has also increased in size.
The oncologist put us on 3 lists for experimental treatment, but due to the waiting time he prescribed XELODA (500mg/tablet).
Three tablets in the morning & three in the evening. This treatment is for breast and colon cancer.
We feel abandoned.
What are our choices?
