Starting chemotherapy GEMCITIBINE

3 years 5 months ago #52130 by lotech35
2nd day after first treatment my knees were sore, I know it can cause sore joints as a side effect thinking this maybe one of them. It's 4 days after knees feel a lot better. I guess I'll see what the next treatment brings.

1st treatment of GEMCITIBINE or Gemzar, the catheter stings a little but not unbearable, in fact it feels the same way BCG feels like.

After the holding time, releasing it wasn't very stingy in fact no worse then prior too the treatment. So far very manageable.
