Xeloda

I had an appointment yesterday with an Oncologist who says I have to have a biopsy of that suspect lung nodule. I’m off Xeloda. She says it must not be working since I have the new liver tumors and now this lung nodule. She is suggesting I try Lonesurf (TAS 102) next, but won’t have me start until we see the results of the lung biopsy. It’s scheduled for the 24th and they say it could take 7 to 10 days till we get the results. I’m in limbo at the moment. So frustrating!

Sue, just wanted to give you a boost. I so totally understand about the waiting and being in limbo. We played the “something is wrong but not sure what” game beginning in January. I am now waiting for April 6th appointment at Moffitt, where I have been referred for liver mets. from colon cancer (which was a total surprise). I hope your feet issues are better. I still have peripheral neuropathy from breast cancer chemo in 2012/13. They tell me it probably won’t get any better. Hang in there. Hope the biopsy is easy on you and they get the answers back quickly. My oncologist gave me something for the anxiety, but it almost seems to make it worse & makes me not want to do anything. They do seem to work for some, so consider that option if you need to.
