Topic: Hi everyone
My name is Hugh, im really happy to see there is such group here which really helps and can see some positive things other than those Ive been searching..
My wife Joe age 43 diagnosis CC on the 25th April 2013, due to stomach pain (for almost a month) and on that day her face and eyes turns yellow so we rush her to hospital and the out come for sure everyone here should knows...
lucky thing is she did surgery on 10th May, which took out half of her liver, bile duct and some lymph nodes around that area... result seems to been pretty fine and she came out of hospital in 5 days after the surgery..
now she still resting at home, her body weight seems to go up and down after her surgery.. the day arrived home at 102lbs.. then up to 112lbs in 10 days... but for the last 5 days she drops back to 104lbs... I know she need to keep her weight up for the next battle.. but somehow she didn't keep up and the Dr said that's normal after surgery...
she did a Pet scan 2 days ago.. it also seems pretty good that no other place got infected other than those place which did surgery got some kind of signal and that the Dr. already told me it will happen be4 the scan
My question is there are 2 ways of adjuvant treatment from 2 different Dr. I consult. which one should I choose...
1. GP which is Gemcitabine and Cisplatin for 3 weeks treatment total of 6 treatments (which is totally free through government hospital)
2. IMRT with Xeloda for 5 days a week total of 5 weeks treatment and then if possible 3 more 3weeks treatment of Xeloda and Oxaliplatin for preventive.
this sounds more aggressive and for sure this I have to pay massive amount which is not cover by government nor insurance.
