My best friend was diagnosed with pc in January. Her treatment to date has consisted of Gemzar and cystoplatin. This chemo therapy is no longer working. Her doctor is planning on a new treatment consisting of 5FU? diredtly into the abdominal cavity. Has anyone know anything about this type of chemo? It was a big disappointment when we got the news yesterday that the chemo was no longer working and she had two new spots in the abdominal wall. The tumor on the pancreas is much smaller as well as the tumors on her liver.
