as you can see it's a quick update to tell you that my mum is going really well. One more round of xelox to finish adj chemo. She hasn't had any serious side effects until today that some neuropathy started in her arms and feet. This is the 5th round and mybe it's due to accumulation, her palms are getting thick and some blisters appeared maybe, I assume it's because of xeloda. This is unusual as she never had that problem before. She's been through difficult times with my dad and thus some depression. Her CEA is up (2,9) but still within the normal range.
Thanks for reading.
