Re: [MOL] Hi All

Dear Dusti:
    Don't know what kind of cancer your mother has but gemzar is first line 
for pancreatic cancer and has become first or second line for many others 
especially lung.  My husband has been on it sporadically since Thanksgiving.  
The main problem it has caused him is a drop in platelets and WBC for which 
he takes neupogen shots and some loss of taste and appetite. It's my 
impression from others that gemzar is not nearly as bad to tolerate as some 
of the other chemos around.  However, it's your mother's decision I guess 
what she wants to do.  If you have any other question I can answer, please 
let me know.  All the best.  Bess
