Hello, I am a colon cancer survivor. I had two rounds of chemo involving the drug 5-FU and its oral counterpart Xeloda. Has anyone who has been on these drugs or others, had tearing up to 1 1/2 years later? Did you have surgery to correct the problem? What did you have done and how did it work? I have just had a DCR performed on my right eye and I guess I will have to wait 2 months until the tubes are removed to know whether or not it is going to help me. I also had my other eye (the "good" eye) irrigated, and now it seems to water more than ever. This is driving me crazy. Any input would be helpful. Thanks, Susan.
