We found out Gemcitabine did not work. The were not able to tell where the cancer originated in the liver. It got significantly larger. The doctors said the cancer is in an advanced stage. He doesn't have any other symptoms, other than not always eating very good. He eats, he just eats like a bird. Most veggies don't taste very good. The doctors want to start FU5. Has anyone had success with this chemo drug? I personally don't think these doctors know what they are doing. Hopefully we will be leaving for Florida in a couple of weeks. No chemo treatment for the last two weeks. Dad's stomach has been filled with too much fluid. We have been getting it removed the past two weeks. We now have it set up with the hospital to get removed every week. We just have to call the day before and check their schedule. I'm not sure he should start the FU5. Please Advise. We are suppose to start this Wednesday.
Thank you for all your input.
