As I finish my second cycle of Xeloda, my tumor markers are down by 30 points and the treatment appears to be tolerable so far. My hands and feet are a little red but not interfering with daily activities. I've had a little diarrhea although not to the point that I have to call the doctor. I'm a little fatigued but it's nothing that a short rest on the sofa can't fix.
I am scheduled to have a follow up brain MRI next week to determine if the Xeloda is helping there also.
