Topic: Gem/Cis v. Folflorinox
My wife was recently diagnosed with non-resectable ICC. We have gone to 2 outstanding Cancer Centers for consult visits prior to starting treatment. We thought she might qualify for an interesting clinical trial, but sadly the trial (Phase 1) is on hold.
We heard a common message for the treatment plan (Gem/Cis) from these specialists. But yesterday, we learned about Folflorinox as an alternative chemo plan. My quick reading indicates this has generated more documented information for pancreatic cancer (which the doctor told us) and the success rate seems to be better for those who can manage the side effects. The doctor said my wife would be a good candidate as she is young (56), fit and otherwise healthy.
Can you share your experience, thoughts, and ways to prepare for Folflorinox treatment. It would be greatly appreciated.
