              Well hello all! Today is the day we start a new journey.  My mom had her first Gemzar treatment at 8:30 this morning.  She will be on Gemzar for 8 weeks then 5 weeks of Radiation and 5FU and then another 8 weeks of Gemzar. I would just like to know everyone's stories or side effects from this chemo.  And how effective it all was. We are very thankful to God that they see no signs of cancer anywhere ...

                I meant to say my mom is starting gemcitabine but I believe it's the same thing as Gemzar.   Anyway has anyone heard of 5fu???  She'll be starting that the beginning of the new year.
