Visited three oncologist and all had a different take on what to do. It was clear none of them really know how to proceed with stage 2. Very disheartening how little is understood about treating CRC. I decided on Xeloda mono therapy for 6 months to start in two weeks. I could not find anything to justify oxi at this time. I hope others with more to offer respond.

I know the few studies on stage 2 show little to no difference with chemo, but I want to do everything I can. My oncologist said xeloda kills cancer cells so I am hoping if there is any escapees the xeloda may help. I hope this gets easier. I am living in a frame of mind of fear. Did you take any vacations while on Xeloda? I really want to do something with my kids this summer. Just don’t know how bad therapy will be.
