I was diagnosed last November with this,stage 4 now, 28 shots of Radiation & 6 Chemo diminished the tumor 95+ % HOWEVER, it spread into my spine, so 10 more radiation! I didn't know there was a pill! So far, so good, no bad side affects! BUT NO CURE ALSO!

Ugh I’m sorry to hear that. No bad side affects is a huge positive! Yes the chemo pills I took were Capecitabine. Made me really sick. 2 nights in the icu total 7 nights in the hospital. My daughter found me unresponsive and had to call 911. But I feel better now, just need to keep gaining weight and get back on chemo. Still doing the herceptin infusions. I’m hoping my scan looks ok. Thank you for sharing you story with me:)
We just have to keep moving:)
