Yesterday was the fisrt day that I did not take pain killers in 2 months. The Xeloda and the radiation seems to be working really well. Sofar I have no side effects after 11 days, besides a couple of borderline diarrheas. I have been on a almost vegan diet for 2 months, juicing, occaisinally I eat eggs, fish and shrimp. I take 800mg/day of cimetidin, because I heard and read so many good things about it. I also take a supplement called Aveultra, which is a fermented yeast supposed to boost the immune system and I really believe has something to to with my father inlaw's 15 year survival of a inoperable prostate cancer. He is 85 and still going strong, which is a miracle.
Thanks God I'm still able to work fine sofar without much problems. I do get tired by the end of the day and I take naps. I get a little feverish which the doctors can't expain, but I don't mind since some say that hyperthermia helps chemo, because it opens up the blood vessels, so the chemo can get everywhere.
Probably the side effects will show up eventually, but sofar so good and I am very gratefull even for this imrovement.
Thank you for your support and all the best for eveyone,
