I haven't been on here in awhile. In 2008 I had a mastectomy for invasive lobular CA, but there was also a few DCIS sprinkled around for good measure. Had chemo, radiation, hysterectomy because I'm BRCA2 positive, and finally a prophylactic mastectomy and reconstruction.
Great until this Jan. and now have metastatic BC, and will be starting Xeloda next week. Curious about side effects including the hand/foot syndrome, and stomach upset. This was all discovered when I had an endoscopy due to stomach problems---so I hope this won't exacerbate that. The stomach stuff isn't related, and will resolve.
Anybody taking it, and if so, for how long and what have you experienced?
Thanks for your help in advance,
