So that’s me started my first of three cycles of retuximab along with gemcitabine and cisplatin. Feeling a bit wiped out today but guess that’s normal! If my tumour shows signs of decrease I will then move onto radiotherapy followed by an auto stem sell transplant.
Has anyone experience of this particular regime and if so, are symptoms likely to last several days? In addition, once my taste buds recover would I be allowed a few glasses of red wine? Daft question but I love relaxing with a glass of red!
I’m trying hard to eat a low calorie no sugar diet to see if this speeds up tumour decrease.
Any past experiences would be much appreciated.
Ps - I’m back on day 8 for another gemcitabine cycle.
