    Hi Josh, How have you and your Mom been doing? I am suppose to start Cis & Gem in a few weeks. Could you let me know if your Mom is tolerating the chemo and how she is feeling. Thank you.

    Hi Carl, I have been searching for comments regarding Cisp and Gem. They are planning on putting in a port next week and starting treatment soon. I will watch your post and see if anyone can give you any information. I wish you strength through these difficult time. Pat

    I have Stage IV bile duct cancer. I had planned on seeing Dr. Catennaci at the University of Chicago for a clinical trial, but decided yesterday that I don’t want to be that far from home. Henry Ford Hospital, West Bloomfield, MI is calling to install my port for solutions of GEMCITABINE and CISPLATIN. I am afraid to start chemo. I am feeling fatigue but am still strong. I’m having enough sadness without adding additional emotional burdens. I really don’t think I am willing to go through the side effects of chemo. Losing my hearing, mouth sores, hair loss, weight gain…..I don’t believe I could handle it. I am joining a support group at Hurley Hospital in Michigan that meets on Thursdays. Question: Can you tell me the side effects you had with Cisplatin and Gemcitabine. Thank you and I sincerely wish you peace.
