After 2 wks. I had every side effect. Had to have Saline IV's and 2 U blood. Feet and hands burned and peeled. Vomit and diarrhea. It has been determined I was allergic to the 5fu component. It did reduce my Ca153 in half. Needless to say it was stopped after 2 wks and will pursue another medication.
