Has anyone had these two drugs? I have been on carboplatin and gemzar since September 2010, and it has stopped working. My tumor markers and CTC numbers are rising again and PET scan last showed new hot spots. Wednesday my oncologist will be starting me on the combination of Ixempra and Xeloda. I'm nervous and worried because he said side effects are similar to adriamycin which was absolutely horrible.
Wondering if anyone else has had this drug combination and what to expect. Also, do I need to dig my wigs back out?
