Reading these posts it saddens me that a few of our veteran members are going through some rough times. So I ask everbody to pray for those that are hurting.
At the same time I'm happy to report that I reached the half way point of my radiation and Xeloda treatment. Thanks God I'm doing really well. Despite of feeling pretty tired I'm still able to work full time, I just take a lot of naps. In the middle of July I'll quit my part time job that requires 1 and 1/2 hour commute one way, so that's gonna be a great relief.
I have basically no side effects sofar with the 3000mg/day Xeloda at all.
As far as the radiation the only thing I have sofar is some itchy redness between the butt cheeks which Desitin seems to handle fine.
I have pretty regular bowel movements and it doest hurt that much.
My teenage daughter seems to pay a little more attention to me, because sofar I had to make major effort to maintain a minimal relationship with her.
My amazing wife takes care of me so well. I may have to cut ties with one of my best guy friends, because he totally ignores my new situation and still dumps all his problems onto me and at this point I don't need more problems.
I wish everyone nothing but good days and strength to handle the bad ones if they pop up.
