They diagnosed dad with PC in Sept also cancer in Kidney and liver. Started Tarceva and Gemzar. Last month we were informed he also has bone cancer ranging from sholders to legs. Today after CT results they stopped Gemzar. PC tumar is growing. They started Xeloda or 5-FU.

Question time, what exactly does this mean? Is anyone here on this? How long? Results? Side effects? Any info would be great to me Dr. and pamplets are confusing.

Thanks so much!

So scared!
