Now he has enlarged nodes in chest, thighs and legs.He is being given Gemox-R and has undergone second dose . however the nodes are still increasing. Please suggest any new or alternate drug

      I can understand your concerns and if only that were just that easy to come to a support site and get an alternative med. However, his oncologists know his disease better than anyone here and only they can alter or suggest his treatment effectively. If you have doubts, you can always seek a second opinion. My best to you and your family, Carm RN.
