Cancer builds a tolerence to each chemo. So the doc may feel that the 5FU has done about as much good as it can do. Gemzar may now build on the good results you got with 5FU and cause further improvement. Gemzar is considered the 'superior' chemo for pc. Unfortunately, once you get past 5FU and Gemzar there is nothing else approved. The rest is experimental.
