Topic: Feet Pain
My wife, Lana, was diagnosed with cc mid October this year (2007). Massive liver involvement and several small spots on her lungs. She completed 5 cycles of gemcitabine and just finished the first cycle of oxaliplatin and 3000mg xeloda daily for two weeks. The xeloda was finished two days ago. We will be starting the second cycle next Wednesday.
The past two days she could barely walk because of extreme pain when she put pressure on her feet. There is some swelling in her feet also. I am wondering if this is a side effect of the chemo. It doesn't seem to be the pins and needles that some people talk about. I experienced these when I had the same cocktail for colon cancer three years ago.
Anyone else had this experience? What can be done?
God bless everyone on this web site.
