Topic: Mom's Radiation/Xeloda and Vomiting
Mom recently changed her plan from Folfirinox (after some additional mets popped up) to a 6 week radiation and Xeloda combo. While on chemo, she rarely vomited. Yet as soon as radiation started she has been vomiting at least once a day (despite taking her Zofran, Compazine regularly). She has lost a lot of weight and has no appetite. The radiation nurse said she believes the Xeloda is causing her to vomit. Has anyone else had experience with this? I am not sure why she was able to maintain her weight, energy with the tough chemo.... but vomiting and having such a rough time from the small Xeloda amount. Any help is appreciated.
Hope this message frind you and your loved ones well.
