In brief: Many options

Choosing chemo depends on many factors, so only your doctor can decide what might work for you.
Drugs you haven't mentioned include altretamine, capecitabine, cytoxan, (cyclophosphamide) vinorelbine, ifosfamide, etoposide, and irinotecan. There are also several hormonal agents. And a clinical trial might be an option. Check out www.Cancer.Gov for more info. And good luck.
