lotech,

Half way through, time to start counting down to last dose of gemcitibine. Hoping it remains doable and that it produces positive results. Thanks for keeping us up on the effects of gem.

Best
Jack

2nd treatment, still stingy but not like BCG actually a bit less uncomfortable. Joints still achy but might just be age.
