I'm sharing my experience from the u.k.

My brother was diagnosed with pc in oct 2014.  He began his chemo one week later (gemcitabine and abraxane). Completed his first 3month session and had his 1st scan three weeks ago. Great results: his tumour has shrunk by 30% and mets from 1.3cm to  1.0cm.

Had the second dose of his second round of chemo this week.  Main side effect seems to be approx 4hrs after chemo his temperature rises quite highly for several hours then is fine the next day. Any comments or advice please as this ballgame is very new to us!!
