    No surgery for me. Mine was diagnosed at stage 4 so I was immediately put on five f u. I tolerated that for 17 months, the had a reaction. Switched to Gemzar abraxane mix off and on.

      I am having Gemzar treatments and just last week started this new pill. Four days into it, I have acne all over my face. Of course I am taking pills for that now too. I am praying the pills will help knock this stupid cancer out of my system.

          Didn't mean to confuse you. I've been on this journey for 20 months now, and the whole time I have had really good scans after the initial one which showed masses all over. I had been on abraxane Gemzar, but had a bad reaction to the abraxane, so they put me on Gemzar. Then in aug they noticed the bone was looking bad, so they stopped Gemzar and did 5 quick rounds of radiation. It's been about a month now with no tr...

              Thank you so much for your response. I am currently in the midst of my hubby's retirement, a move from co to tx, and lots of family drama to deal with. I have a new oncologist that is fabulous and I will see if I can be tested for this. I am finishing up radiation today for the cancer in my hip bone. Thanks again! Donna

                  My question is, What is being done for cancer in the bone? Just radiation, or is there a chemo drug for it? My cancer was diagnosed in jan 2013, all over my organs, and since the initial chemo it has not come back in any organs...except for my bones. Any advice will be appreciated.... Thanks in advance, Donna
