My mom is has completed 28 sessions of IMRT radiation treatments in March 2012. She is now into her 3rd cycle of Gemzar, dosage approx 1750 mg for 3 weeks and one week off. She has a blood clot located in the portal vein, currently on coumadin. Recent admission to the hospital due to mental status changes, abdominal pain, nausea. They found bleeders in the stomach/duodenum. Sites were lasered.
She still continues to have severe acidic pain in the stomach, intermittent nausea, intermittent abd pain. Her oncologist started her on carafate which worked well for several days, but now is useless.
Anyone out there have similar complications as my mother???
