Just wanted to post that my dad will be starting his third cycle of chemo for the BILCAP trial today.
The doctor told him that the side effects of Xeloda should (or could) stay fairly stable from now on - the only ones which could be cumulative are fatigue and the skin problems. My dad has only had to stay in bed for one morning so far (so not debilitating fatigue) and continues to use the Udder Balm.
Last saturday I had my baby - a boy who we have decided is going to be a future Gastro-intestinal Surgeon/Oncologist! If only he can be as good as Mr Menon! Obviously this has really helped everyone in the family and especially my parents.
Wishing you all the best and hoping for good news for others,
