External radiation - gc1952

Radiation Associated with Ampullary Cancer. Posted on January 15, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I just completed 6 weeks of radiation/chemotherapy at Shands Hospital. I had radiation daily M-F and took Xeloda twice a day on the days I had radiation. Minimal side effects--mostly mild nausea and fatigue--and I took meds as needed for the nausea. Now I get a month to rest and recuperate before getting 4 to 6 months of Gemcitebine IV. My doctors say this plan is designed to "cure" my cancer. So far, things have gone better than I expected in the chemo/radiation. Here's hoping that the future continues to be as positive.

Painless Experience: Neutral/NA
