Re: XELODA /capecitabine /

Hi October,
I took capecitabine about 5 years ago for colon cancer after my resection surgery. It was not a problem, but I did experience some of the feet and hand sensitivity problems. Gradually my dosage had to be cut back as it got worse. My doctor said it was better to not wait until it got bad because then you would have to quit the medication all together.
It was not really a problem, but I did have some pain walking and in my hands if I was not careful. Good luck with your treatment and recovery.
