I am TNBC ( now stage 4 ). My cancer spread to lungs & bones a few months after treatments ended. I took Xeloda for 10 months. Hand & foot syndrome was bad, but what ended Xeloda for me was severe non-stop diarrhea. This drug did shrink the tumors while I was taking it.
Hi - I'm not TNBC, I am ER+, PR+ HER-. I had to take Xeloda for six months after chemo infusions, mastectomy and radiation. I finished Xeloda this past May. If I can answer any questions for you, please let me know.
I just stared xeloda dry mouth fuzzy head stomach ache
