    I have been on XELODA for 3 mon. after being on faslodex injections and xgeva for bone strength. I was treated in 2000 for stage 2 HER positive. It came back in my spine and now in my bone marrow. The doc is pleased with the XELODA, but I am concerned because my red blood cell count stays low because of cancer cells in my marrow and because XELODA also destroys red blood cells. Overall, I still ha ... Show Full Comment

    After two cycles, the Hand/Foot Syndrome began, mostly to feet. I have been on this drug a little more than a year.

Skin gets very dry. Cool water/aloe on feet/palms helps. Get comfy shoes and moisturizer oft ... Show Full Comment

    I had breast cancer in 2000 which had spread to my spine in one of my vertebrae. I was prescribed Xeloda by my oncologist. Despite the severe side effects of hands and feet going red, blisters in my mouth and skin disorders, the oncologist insisted on this drug. I decided to terminate the use within 11 weeks. I am now experiencing numbness in both my hands, swelling and stiffness in all the joints ... Show Full Comment

    Misdiagnosed as "cured" after mastectomy 8-2011. I had no chemo or radiation. Cancer came back in neck lymph node and under arm in mastectomy side. I was put on Xeloda in July 2013 and have been on 2000/day 2 weeks on, 1 off since. Neck lymph node gone, and other tumors drastically decreased. I want to let all on Xeloda with hand/foot syndrome with bleeding sores on feet to try/use T ... Show Full Comment
