My wife was diagnosed about 1 month ago and I have been trying to research and learn as much as I can concerning her condition. It seems that chemotherapy ( cisplatin and gemcitabine which seems to be the chemicals of choice) are not very successful in shrinking tumors or arresting the disease.
They have told us surgery is not an option .
I've begun to look into clinical trials to see if she is eligible for any of those.
I have to say the first discussion thread I read from Oceangirl was extremely depressing as it seemed her brother passed in no time.
I guess I 'm looking for treatment options, success sorties, messages of hope.
As I imagine most people have stated this came out of the blue and is quite devasting news.
I need to spend some more time reading thru the discussion boards but I wanted to post something.
