@jseim106 How is Xeloda working for you?
Xeloda (capecitabine pills) may not be working 🙁 I started taking 3000 mg daily 2 weeks on 1 week off last October. Recently my cycle was changed to 1 week on and 1 week off (still 3000 mg daily) because of severe hand/foot side effects.
However, a new MRI scan yesterday shows NEW tumors in my liver and a “suspicious lung nodule.” I’ve been hoping that Xeloda was going to shrink the existing tumor and prevent new ones, not GET MORE tumors. I’m so bummed.

Hi Sue,

I stopped Xeloda in December and have continued my acupuncture and Chinese herbs and so far have had a normal CEA, but won’t have a scan until June. Hoping everything stays normal. I’m not sure what to tell you. I believe I’ve had success with Vit C and acupuncture and dietary changes, but who really knows what works. Maybe there’s an acupuncturist in your area that specializes in cancer?? Let me know how you are doing!
