    Cisplatin

    Does anyone here know anything about adding cisplatin to Gemzar/Abraxane? Specifically, if the G/A combo stops working, but then Cisplatin is added, are there cases where the chemo was effective again?
    Thanks.

    March 2016- inoperable due to arteries, also liver mets suspected
    March 2016-January 2017 -Gemzar/Abraxane
    February 2017 surgery-PC tumour and liver mets removed at same time
    July 2018 Back on Gemzar/Abraxane due to rising CA 19-9. Scans were clear.

    I had gengar and cisplatin together. I took xoloda while I had 30 radiation treatments after chemo was complete. It worked wonders for me. I am a 9 year pancreatic cancer survivor! First diagnosis was 10-20-2010 then I had a recurrence in 6-6-2011. That was when I had the chemo and radiation. The first time I had just surgery.

    Was it a local recurrence? Your story is encouraging.

    Hi,

    Cisplatin worked fantastic for you, maybe because you are BRCA2 which I read on your other post in this forum, but I also read so many positive result on Gem+Abrax+Cis, especially on Ahmad father case in this forum.
