Has anyone experienced an chest pains on this regimen? I had similar chest pains on Oxaliplatin, but just started the Xeloda and Avastin on Monday, thought I was having a heart attack, went to Doc today, dehydrated,..elevated heart rate, but low blood presure...Could it just be stress? I also found out that while I was told my lesions on my liver had only grown like 2 milliters, there are two new lesions that measure like 3x4cm...and my liver functions are climbing, but my CEA is not...
What is it, the doctor wants to spare me the bad news by telling me it only grew a little bit? Kinda pissed about that one...and hopefully my liver functions are elevating because the chemo is killing the tumors, not because the disease is growing...
Gotta go watch some comedy, this stress and gloom and doom is really getting to me, not to mention the fact that the chemo messes with your mind..
