Re: Carboplatin/Gemcitabine Combo

Hi Clarissa,

I have just come across your post from March.  Not sure by now if you are still on this treatment?

I am about to start it this coming Thursday (having had a number of other chemos which have worked for a while and have then stopped working) and would appreciate any information on how you this treatment was for you?

I too have a port since beginning of this year.  Not something I wanted but problems with finding a vein became an issue.  

I hope your port fitting wad stress free anf that this treatment has helped you.

Regards,

Lorraine

Carboplatin/Gemcitabine Combo

Hi Ladies. Due to start Carboplatin -Gemcitabine Chemo on weds if all’s well with bloods and kidney function. Any advice would be appreciated. Read about all lovely side effects 😬😳 but interested to hear other experiences. Also my veins are knackered and have to have a portacath put in the same day I start my chemo...presume this ok but seems a lot to fit into one day ??  Xx
