I am still on ADAPT and CT last week shows still NED since last surgery in August 2014.

I have a good quality of life and so will probably carry on with this. I take cimetedine as well.

I really don’t have much side effects. The only thing that I get is a stool that somewhat burns, almost like a virus, when on the Xeloda. Other than that, I feel pretty normal.

It was not part of a trial but I had my local onc call Dr Lin and get the protocol for me to follow and my onc at MDA neither approved nor disapproved of me adding the Celebrex. He finds it intriguing that I have no HFS and I keep telling him it is bc of the Celebrex!!
