My wife is having her first Chemo treatment tomorrow. We don't know yet what they are giving her but as I review the postings and review the study article referenced in another posting it appears all, or most, UPSC patients are getting basically the same group of drugs. Her oncologist told us he was going to treat her cancer very aggressively. The oncology nurse told us to expect at least 5 hours and that she would begin to lose her hair by the second day after her first treatment. We are a little nervous about what to expect. I wish I could be in the infusion area with her but they said that was not allowed. Looks like I will be in the waiting room reading a book, etc. It looks like it will be a long day. I will post something after the treatment.
