Re: GEMZAR

I had gem with carboplatin and as I'm a long way down the line my body couldn't cope with the 2 weeks on and 1 week off so had it 3 weekly and was OK. Got a bit tired towards the end but then as it looked as if it was my last option I had 9 cycles. I didn't have any flu like symptoms.
I'm sure there have been have been threads about this - lots of places call it gemcetabine so you might find it under that but I think most people tend to have it with another chemo rather than on its own.
Hope all goes well for you

GEMZAR

Hi there
Have just had my first dose of Gemzar ( its to be once a week for 2 weeks and 1 week off)
All I had was a real flu effect for 2 days so if it stays like that then I can work with that
Anyone else out there on it please
Love to you all jANE
