I am new to the group and in radiation and chemo (Xeloda). For my story, please see my postings on Gallbladder Cancer Stage 4. I am wondering if anyone else has had hand swelling and soreness from taking Xeloda? It is a common side effect and hit me on Day 8. I had to discontinue chemo for one day. Since I have a full six weeks of it and am only in week two, I am interested if anyone else experienced this and how it can be prevented or treated. My oncologist has me on B6 tablets, 100 mgs. three times daily but I still developed the swelling. Any ideas would be most appreciated!
