Discussion Boardstage IV gallbladder cancer was posted 07/27/2004 07:00 pm by Eve
My mother, 76, was diagnosed in June with Stage IV gallbladder cancer with
mets to the pancreas, lymph nodes and liver. She is now on single-agent
Gemzar. This is such a rare cancer that I would love to hear from other
people on this board who have dealt with it. What therapies do you know of.
Any chemo combos that might work better than single-agent Gemzar? We live in
the Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C. I have taken my mom to Hopkins (where
she was told her cancer was not operable) and Georgetown (where the doctor
told us to go back if her Gemzar doesn't work). But in the meantime, I really
need to hear from others.
