Reason: Metastatic breast Cancer - Liver Date: 4 February 2010
Side Effects
Tiredness. Dry skin. Hand and Foot syndrome. The soles of my feet swell, become inflamed and painful and finally peel off layers of skin. I am now keeping this under control my using an all natural moisturiser. morning and night...all over!

Additional Thoughts
Far kinder to me than the IV I had for early breast Cancer. Liver enzymes are now settling after initially reacting to the Xeloda. Tumours have shrunk. I can live as normally as possible knowing when my feet are going to get sore so I can deal with it. All very good so far.
