I am also being treated with gemcitabine and cisplatin. I get my infusion every 3 weeks. In addition, I take Tarceva (erlotinib) every day. I have had 4 infusions so far. My recent scan showed stabilization; no growth. I am feeling great, and have absolutely no side effects from any of these drugs. I hope you continue to do well.
Pearland… Great to hear. Pray it keeps on working. Also remember the fact that it is working with this type combination of chemo there is a good chance that other combinations may help if needed in the future. But as we all know it’s different for everyone. It is so trial and error with this disease.
Take Care! And yes Good news is uplifting!
My loved one, diagnosed with cc, has undergone one regimen of Gemcitabine+Cisplatin combo. To our relief, the tumors are finally shrinking a bit. (Other treatments have failed and the tumors had been growing.)
It’s a relief that something is actually working now. I wanted to share this news, as I know how we all cling to any good news we can get our hands on with cholangiocarcinoma. Any good news is uplifting!
