I have heard about Gemzar being combined with RFS-2000 (Rubitecan), in clinical trials for pancreatic cancer. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this treatment? My mom was diagnosed 6-7-99 with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, she has just started her chemo a few weeks ago. She has been having her bouts with constipation and fatigue, she now has to go for an ultrasound she has been bloated, her oncoligists thinks it might be fluid. What would cause this? Me and my sisters are trying to be strong for her, trying to find out as much about this as we can, we just can't believe this is all happening to fast!!!!
