I sincerely hope yall are having a fabulous Friday night! I am having some Xeloda complications and I need some advice. My Xeloda dose was reduced from 3300 to 3000 in January when they upped my oxaliplatin from 85 to 135. I finished my Xeloda dose last Tuesday and was scheduled for a new cycle this past Tuesday, but alas, Monday morning disaster struck. I awoke with horrible, horrible abdominal pain and vomiting. I was hospitalized and they hooked me up with morphine and hydration till Wednesday afternoon. WHAT IS GOING ON? Has anyone experienced this. I am confused as to why this is the first time happening to me on a lower dose and a week after a finished my last dose of Xeloda. And the pain was pretty intense. Does anyone know of this happening? Any input would be really helpful. I'm sort of worried about sudden intense pain and my doctors are just about ready to chalk up the episode to Xeloda without further investigation. Thanks guys and have a great week-end.
Hugs to all!
