You’re most welcome Janice. Just hope that some of that info is of use to you! Let me know if I can help any more and I sure will if I can. However, translating Japanese abstracts I will definitely struggle with!!!
Hopefully those who either they or their loved ones will chip in soon to share their experiences of Gem Cis and what it all involved etc. I know that a ton of people, again either themselves of their loved ones have gone through that treatment and there are loads of posts here on the site detailing it all etc. These can be found here –
That link above will take you to the individual postings by members here on the site regarding everything to do with Gem Cis. Hopefully you will get a load of info through that just now and here are some links for you about Gem Cis from the best and most reputable sites here in the UK.
The above links have lots of other links within them that contain a lot more info on it too. I will keep my fingers crossed for your mum and wish her every success with the treatment. Please let us know how it all goes for her.
…and hoping for some experiential insight and guidance from those who’ve done it. Yes, everyone is different, but sometimes, it’s just good to hear from people who have already traveled that path… and to hear their impressions/ideas regarding what it might be like, ways to make it easier/deal with side effects/maximize the therapeutic effect.
I’ll gather information from various websites, as well.
