My father was diagnosed with a stage II adenoncarcinoma of the Pancreas 5 weeks ago. It has metastased in the Liver. The tried to do a wipple 3 weeks ago but did not remove the tumor, however they relieved him from the bile poising.
He never wanted Chemo for he has always had an aversion to vomiting. Now he has changed his mind and is accepting to undertake it.
Initially he was told that they were putting him on GEMOX but now he will be starting GEM + Xeloda next Tuesday.
Does anyone have experience of Xeloda especially as how to subdue the side effects.
Thank you very much for any feedback
