I have liver/gall bladder cancer that has metasticised into my bones. I can,t find the type of chemo in my paperwork, but we're changing to a new one next week. The one in question was given every other week - first part 2 hours IV in hospital followed by 46 hours administered by a pump that was very small and went with me. It would take me the rest of the day to get the exact type. Sorry I can't do better
