I was in a trial for Stivarga a few years ago, for use of Stivarga as a second line of treatment for mCRC. I had the exact same experience...11 days fine and then a whole body crazy rash. I was pulled off the trial, because it was about dosage and they couldn't lower my dosage or make any changes for their study. It lowered my CEA quickly, though. I would use it again , maybe at a lower dose, in the future.
FYI...it took about a week for the crazy rash to go away.
