Re: Side effects with chemo

The terrible bowel cramping/spasms I had with Capecitabine (Xeloda) were intolerable/constant and were the reason I stopped my Chemo after consultation with my Onc. Note: I was Colon 2A and taking Chemo for my specific diagnosis/situation was optional. I only made it through 2 rounds-spasms started ...

Re: Diarrhoea only at Night

Nocturnal diarrhea is one of the less common side-effects listed for Capecitabine (Xeloda). I had it and think I used Immodium to 'calm" it down when I did.
I hope he finds some relief to his problem.

Re: Stage IIA: Chemo or not?

I had the same difficulty in deciding re:Xeloda for my Colon 2A sigmoid post-resection. My Onc said it would give me the few % which would be the same % as an exercise regimen. I thought I could do both-which for me was not possible. I decided to take Xeloda but stopped after 2 cycles of it- I was s...

Hi ktwmn, Sorry for the late reply. I had significant joint/athritic pain while I took Xeloda. Below is what I posted about my Xeloda experience which I started the end of Dec.2014.
