My dad wasn't on that combination. He was on Xeloda and Gemzar. Do you know how much Xeloda will have to be taken in a day? My dad's dose was 1800 mg total daily. His combination slowed down the cancer, but didn't stop it.

When you enter this board, on top there is a link to the pancreatic chat board. You can post your message there and also got to the search button and type in the two words. Xeloda is the correct spelling, but it does sound like zeloda. These two cancers are treated with many of the same drugs and combinations. There are also many more posting on there as this is a rarer cancer, but just as aggressive as pc.
