Re: Gem-Carbo chemo. Anyone had experience of this they could share?

Hi @Lancashire Lass I hope you are finding the Forum useful so far. There are many people's experiences here that will hopefully be helpful to read. 

If you ever have any questions and want to hear back from our Nurses, you can do so by posting a question in our Ask Our Nurse boards.

Sending our warmest wishes,

Gem-Carbo chemo. Anyone had experience of this they could share?

I saw my oncologist last week and my half way scan following 3 cycles of Abraxane shows only marginal improvement. As the peripheral neuropathy is quite marked she has suggested we finish with Abraxane and move on to Gemcitabine and Carboplatin instead. Great news that my hair will start to regrow but not sure about other side effects and how bad they might be. Any ladies out there got experience of this.

Thank you, any support gratefully received.
