Anyone had these problems while on Xeloda and Avastin? The onc. told my husband Avastin causing proteinuria: protein in the urine, so he is doing more tests on that and wants to hold off on the Avastin. The Xeloda causing scleroderma: tighten of the skin especially in the hands and it can also affect other organs but so far we do not think it has affected any of his organs. At least it did not show up on his recent scans. But at that time they were looking for tumors not scleroderma.
