Re: new round of chemo

Hi Wisdom....welcome to our site.  Have new lesions appeared post-resection or is surgery contemplated followed by adjuvant therapy?  Others may come along re: Xeloda however, in the meantime for your perusal I am attaching a few links:

But, as always I am wishing for others to chime in and share some personal experiences with you.
All my best wishes,
