My daughter got fluids and anti-nausea meds before her Gemzar. This would be about an hour. Her Gemzar ran for about 100 minutes. We always have labs and doctor visit before chemo, so it usually ends up being an all day affair. If you just have to go for chemo and she gets right in, it should only take about 3 hours.
My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
