Diagnosed 1/19/13 colonoscopy. Surgery 2/19/13 stage 3 Grade 3 rectosigmoid cancer. 1 node out of 21 positive T2N1. All scans prior to surgery looked good. Beginning Xeloda 4000 mg 2 weeks on 1 week off. I was scared taking the pills this morning 4 am 4 pm total. Have read some positive stories and scary stories regarding this medication. Anyone with experience on this med, currently this is the only med prescribed and no radiation. do the side effects start slowly or hit quickly? I am very anxious to get back to work (mostly financial reasons) 2 kids college 1catholic HS. And wondering if I will be able to work.
Thanks and God Bless,
