I still have 7 rads to go before I can start my new and stronger chemo. With mets to spine and ribs and previous chemo not helping....in fact I got another spinal tumor during chemo....my oncologist and I discussed my tendency to develop tumors while in treatment. With this in mind he choose to put me on Xeloda 3 times a day.
I just started taking it yesterday afternoon so I'm not sure of the side effects. I know I'm not feeling too good but rads have done a number on me so who knows?
I'm having problems taking it 1/2 hour after meals, which are not spaced in a way to follow the dosing advice. Plus I hate eating due to my esophagus being so burned and having no appetite.
Any advice on this oral chemo would be appreciated.
Hugs to all,
