So sorry about your hands. I struggled for the first five days post Oxi but I am only on 2nd round of chemo this time. I have been told six months total. I did got credit for 7 weeks before so doing 5 rounds post op with both Oxi and Xeloda. What is your current routine, seems like you are doing a lot more than that?
8 cycles at three weeks each (standard XELOX) regimen.
I did the six weeks of Neo-Adjuvant as well.
Oxaliplatin: 100%, 100%, 70%, 65%, 0%, 55%. Oncologist wants 0 or 1 more Oxaliplatin infusion, percentage to be determined.
Xeloda: 100%, 100%, 100%, 100%, 87.5%, 87.5%. I'm inclined to go to 75% the next time if the hands and feet don't decline after I stop taking it this cycle.
The problem today was that stuff came out for 80 minutes and a lot of liquidy so cleaning it and then applying the barrier and then the paste and bag were a problem. I hadn't eaten for 9 hours before but stuff just kept coming out. The stuff is usually a lot firmer without the Oxaliplatin so it will come out and then stop long enough to do the paste and apply the bag. The change next week should be a lot better. It's just one of the headaches of the regimen.
