Topic: My Sister
I have been discussing my sister lately. She is Stage IV Bile Duct Cancer. Her Gemzar and Xeloda were working but after about 7 months it stopped. They have now started her on Taxol and some other long word. She had one treatment 3 weeks ago and has lost her hair and about 30 pounds. Not eating, drinking, horrible headaches. And now one side of her face is drooping. She has another appt. tomorrow to get this chemo again. I am praying that they decide not to do it.
Has anyone ever heard of the face drooping side affect? This scares me really bad. Oh and so much pain. She is going downhill so fast and I don't know if it's the chemo or the cancer. She said her pain has increased ALOT.
