Can you have blood in your stool during chemo? At round 5 of 8. Taking Oxy/Xeloda/Avastin. Really scared about this.

    Your dr about that it could be important.

    Avastin
    One of our members had her colon rupture while taking Avastin. She was told it was a possible side effect of the drug. I'd insist it be checked!

    Tell you doctor, they may lower your chemo dose. I had it also right before I was admitted for dehydration and when they started me back on chemo they lowered the dose.
