Re: Stage 3c bowel cancer

Have had all clear on chest, abdomen and pelvis CT scan, plus ultrasound just on liver. Starting 8 three week cycles of Oxaliplatin and capecitabine chemo Wednesday. Infusion first then 2 weeks of tablets starting Thursday. Have 6 days off before the whole thing starts again.
Has anyone out there been on the same regime and if so how did you cope? I've been told the main side effect is diarrhoea but they've told me about a fair few others as well, none of them particularly pleasant!
