Re: Stage 2a - Who did not do chemo? How many out there?

Re: Working while on xeloda

I have 5 cycles of Xeloda so far and i have not have any side effects accept occasional fatigue. But then my work is mostly desk bound, so that may be why i can handle it well. Additionally i am working on a 4 days week so i will not overstretch myself.
