My mom was dx. with pc and mets to liver on 4/3/00. She has been doing well on gemzar until 2 weeks ago. I remember reading on this board that someone's dad (or maybe it was the perosn themselves) went through a similar thing and that after 10 months the gemzar stopped working and the doctors switched them to another chemo which was working well. The person went on to say that the doctors said that if someone reacted well to gemzar they probably would to this as well. I would like to be armed with this info before we go into see the doctor on Tuesday. I don't remember when this was posted but I think it was about 6-8 weeks ago. I can't believe I can't find it. I know I printed the info out somewhere but now that I'm in a panic state, I can't locate it. If anyone could help me with some info and soon, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
