    sounds like what happened to my aunt. except the muscle controled bowel movement and cancer spread to her intestines, which created a perferation that cause toxins from her intestines to enter her body. while on chemo she died because of this.

    Assuming that nothing else is going on, then the treatment would depend on the patient’s overall health. A common chemotherapeutic regimen in this setting would be gemcitabine (Gemzar) + cisplatin; the more traditional, but slightly more toxic, regimen is MVAC, a combination of 4 drugs.

    The patient should see a medical oncologist for an opinion if s/he hasn’t yet.
