Topic: Starting chemo today!
Well, after a very long time (seven months!) since all of this started, my mum finally begins her chemo today. Three cycles of Gem/Cis - I think that’s right; i’m presuming that one cycle counts as two weeks on, one week off? She will then be re-evaluated to see whether surgery is possible. Our surgeon reckons that it’s 50/50, if we can kill off a few of the smaller spots on the liver, but our oncologist has said that surgery will never be possible - naturally we’re ignoring this!
My mum has been a little scared to start chemo, due to the possible side effects, but i’ve seen on this site that many people do well on Gem/Cis, so i’ve been able to reassure her and she is feeling hopeful that she’ll tolerate it well. Thanks again for all of your support, it’s making this process a whole lot easier. I’ll keep you all updated as to how she gets on.
