You better ask the doctor how long does your father take to be recovered. My mum has try capecitabine (xeloda) and has almost no side effects except for acceptable tiredness. She is currently undergoing Folfox and Avastin. Last time she also suffers from serious diarrhea and we sent her back to hospital. She stayed for 3 days 2 nights and became much better. Take care of the diet is also very important. My mum has congee during those days. Wish your father all the best!
