My husband did three rounds of cisplatin and campostar, recently pet scan showed it did nothing in fact, his cancer grew more, more mets to liver and stomach. So the doctor today changed up his treatment plan to:
Oxalipatin done by vein once every 21 days
xeloda three pills in am and three pills in pm (500 mg each pill)
I have read alot about these chemo drugs and noticed alot of side affects on both of them especially the hand/foot problem, etc.
Has anyone been on this combo and did they have any side affects at all? Is this a good combo vs the cisplatin and campostar?
thanks so much
