Gemcitabine chemotherapy treatments reactions are different for everyone , some people breeze through, others have side effects I have one tip that may help during treatment,wash and rinse the mouth with bicarbonate of soda a few times a day it may help prevent mouth ulcers.

Hi. I was on Gemcitabine also know as Gemzar. I always got a face and neck rash on the 2nd day. That would go away the same day. On day 3 I sometimes got a low grade fever.
I was on FU5 2 different times. The Gemzar and FU5 stopped working for me. I'm now on the combination Genzar and Abraxane. I had a CT yesterday. Results are Stable. Some growth in my lungs. But not too bad.
I'm 50 years old. Diagnosed with Pancreas Cancer Stage 4 in 12-20-10. I feel good most days. My advice is to keep positive. Be Thankful to God always. Force myself to be active and do the things I always enjoyed. Drink water, water helps alot of things.
