Well, after much speculation, this was my brothers diagnosis. They are going to start chemo next week (5-FU and oxyplastin). Does anybody have any success stories with this sort of chemo? Also, side effects? They are giving him 3-6 months without treatment, up to a year with.

Would love to talk with someone going through the same thing.
