I will be getting it alone, we decided to hold Avastin for future use, because the CT scan showed a few pelvic cancerous lymph nodes, but thankfully no spread to other organs at this time.
My question to you is if you've had Gemzar alone, what were your side affects. I know it does a number on blood values, and I'll need shots for the white, red and platelet cells.
I also understand there can be flu like symptoms, have you had any other side affects, like constipation or diarrhea?
Of course I'll ask my oncologist and the nurses on Monday, but I was hoping for input from you ladies.
