Topic: What works?
Hey everyone, I wanna say thanks in advance for any responses!
My mom was diagnosed with this disease around March. Since then she has been on gem/cis for around 9 rounds. Within that time we have taken 4 CT scans which showed growth of tumor in her liver from 1st and 2nd scan, but shrinkage from 2nd and 3rd scan. The 4th scan showed little growth from the 3rd scan so our doctor took her off of it. Now she is on FOLFIRINOX if I remember correctly and has had 2 rounds to date.
Because the tumor is pressing on her liver she has trouble eating which is causing her to lose a lot of weight. I am pretty sure her lack of eating is what caused the chemo to not be as effective.
I was wondering what you all had success with. Thanks again
