Chemotherapy - hilary

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Pancreatic Cancer. Posted on April 16, 2012 View this journey (17 Experiences)

Gemzar Round 3 was definitely like a horse of a different color. It was awful ... Dad was not active at all... slept... he did eat and drink SOME... He had lots of pains and cold, cold, cold feet. Feet warmers and warming pads helped. Mom thinks it was worse for Dad than the radiation, which was like death.

It is OVER... last Tuesday - 7 days ago. The last couple of days he's been feeling better. Scans, Drs appts scheduled for early May. Fingers crossed it's all good - hoping they say he's Cancer Free and able to return to normal living (as normal as you can post Whipple). Followup tomorrow with oncologist doing the chemo to check blood numbers.

    Hilary, I'm delighted to hear that your dad is finally starting to feel better. Hopefully his spirits will improve right along with his improving health. All fingers and toes are crossed in the hopes that your dad will have the end result that you all want. You both continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
