My suggestion is for you to discuss in detail with your oncologist regarding possible side effetcs. You doctor would be also able to explain to you how to manage side effect etc. A little info that you need to knwo- when on xeloda- dont take Folic Acid ; apply hand lotion to hands/feet-as often as you can.
