My 62 year old wonderful husband was diagnosed with Stage III unresectable PC in April. He already had 6 weeks of radiation (M-F) and chemo 24/7 (5 FU). His latest scan showed no change or shrinkage of his tumor. His oncologist is starting him on Gemzar this week for 4 months (once a week for 3 weeks and 1 week off). The side effects sound awful and I don't think he will be able to tolerate them. Has anyone taken this drug and had to stop it because of the side effects? Is my husband headed towards the end stage of this disease? Please be blunt. Prognosis anyone?
