We saw the dr today. We have decided to try the Xeloda. Charlie has already had 4 rounds of chemo (5-FU, Taxotere, Cisplatin.) He is not a candidate for surgery.....stage 4...mets to lung, liver, lymph nodes, and peritoneal cavity. Dr suggested we try Xeloda to try to keep the EC in remission. We figure it is worth a shot..So we are going to start on Sunday or Monday. Praying the side effects aren't too bad. Charlie doesn't want it to compromise his quality of life. He is just starting to feel a little better.
