His tumors were active. Adenocarcinoma in the abdominal cavity. Mets. Yuk.I am hoping the insurance will pay for the Xeloda this time. I am just glad he is willing to try to treat them, but I don't know if I would if I were in his shoes. Who knows. I don't know why he is having Xeloda rather than Cisplatin. When asking when we should start chemo the dr's reply was YESTERDAY!! Wow.
