Hi all,

Dad had a follow up appt with the Medication Oncologist today and looks like he will be starting chemo the Monday after Christmas.  They are starting him on Gemzar and FU5.  3 weeks on, 1 week off.  With lab work to monitor cell counts weekly. 

Can anyone give me some information on the Gemzar/FU5 treatments?  What to expect regarding side effects, effectiveness and out come of the treatments?

Thank you,

Vhonda
