Topic: Mom back in hospital
My mother finished her two week 'on' schedule with Xeloda on Wednesday night....had labs drawn yesterday and was very, very weak and tired. Started having uncontrollable diarrhea last night....it resolved at about midnight with the help of 4 doses of Immodium, but started again this morning at about 4:30. Called 911 - when she was admitted to ER, her heart rate was 140 and BP was about 70/40......hydration and plasma has helped....but now she has a 20 point difference in her left and right arm BP's....just did a CT to see if her tumor has grown enough to be pressing on her aortic valve....Has anyone else had this???
