Re: New member with Xeloda question for Stage II

Hi ocgross10 welcome to Colon Talk. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Are you sure that Xeloda is causing neuropathy? That is typically related to oxaliplatin found in the FOLFOX combination. Xeloda is related to hand/foot syndrome. It's annoying to be sure, butt there are measures you can take t...

Re: Please need prayers

Hi Hopegirl - your name is already showing you have the right attitude.

I think today you thought you would get results - I am sending prayers that the news is good.

Hugs to you - and if you can, see the green and colors now outside.

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!! PRE SURGERY QUESTIONS

Hi Eleda: I am praying for your surgery day which comes soon, and a smooth post-op. If you can, think of it as a spa time, where you are waited on, you really have no duties except follow what the hospital staff request. I am 12 days post-op from a sigmoid colectomy. Pain is not bad, I had the push-...
