I had breast cancer in 2001 and it has returned as mets to my liver, kidney and pelvis bone. I had no success with IV chemo but have had shrinkage of lesions on the liver and no growth on other areas with xeloda. Side effects, hands and feet not too bad, diarreah has been my main concern and my dose has been lowered to 3 in the AM and 2 in the evening.

This medication has lower my tumore cell counts. I am on a very low dose as I had a sever hand/foot reaction. I take 2 pills morning and evening for one week on and one week off. I do feel tired most of the time but nap and sleep well at night. I have been on this medication for 2 years.
