    Deep vein thrombosis

    Side Effects

    Part of the after effect of GTX therapy gave us another hospital to spend a few days recovering as we now prepare for the Whipple in two to three weeks.

    Cancer is shrinking

    Celebration

    At 21 days on GTX Liz has gone from 3.5 x 3.7 cm to 2.5 x 2.6 cm and that shows tumor sensitivity and makes enduring all the side-effects more acceptable. We needed this!
