    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Did carbo/gem for 4 months, was not successful, cancer growing and spreading. Started Taxotere and Xeloda in 9/2012 and had two hospital visits in 2 1/2 months lasting 10 days each for infections. Just doing Xeloda on reduced dose as of now. About to increase dose of Xeloda and start another round in a couple of days.
