      I've been on it since January and it's been keeping my numbers down. Good luck to your wife!

      I'm sorry that your mom was not totally informed about chemo. I'm a patient and a retired nurse. Patient's should never be uninformed about their treatment. Ask the doctor or nurses to tell you the names of what you are getting, what the side effects are, how long you will be on them. Basically, you should get answers to all your concerns.
