Xeloda (capecitabine): Xeloda (capecitabine) is one of chemotherapy that is effective -in combination with other chemotherapy - for stomach cancer. As a systemic treatment- it would work not only for the mass on the stomach but also for the cancer cells elsewhere- including the ones in the bone. The response may be individually however., you should give a try and see how it does. In addition, zometa or x-geva need to be considered.
