Hi Beach,

Overall very tolerable. The only issue I seem to have is stomach cramps/gas. It's not major, but can be a bit uncomfortable at times, but overall, feeling good. I just did blood work today for my avastin infusion next week, and also to check everything, I do this every 3 weeks. Maybe they can add avastin regimen to your xeloda, never heard of just xeloda only, but I am not sure.

Good cramps/gas are not to bad, but of course that is a guy thing to say, ha.
I take multi-symptom imodium right before xeloda to avoid it. I would be so embarrassed to pass gas in front of anyone. I would have to blame it on my kids or husband.
I am on the ADAPT protocol plus extras (supplements) as of now. The xeloda is a game changer compared to the ole bag (nickname for the pump).
I hope your bloodwork results are great!
