Faslodex and Ibrance have stopped working after only ten months. Now moving onto Capecitabine (spelling?) what are peoples experiences of this chemotherapy?
I am about to start my second cycle of capecitabine (2 weeks twice daily tablets and one week off) and for me it has been ok. I was really tired on day 3 (much more so than usual) and then after that have been ok and then the bad tiredness at the end of the when i was taking tablets and some metallic taste in my mouth towards the end also. So for me, I seem to be tolerating it well. I have nothing to compare it to as this is my first chemo treatment. They gave me anti-sickness tablets and Difflam mouthwash to take home with me and other than the first evening, i haven t needed the anti-sickness tablets and I haven't needed the mouthwash.
I really hope your experience will be the same
Take care x
I've been fine with it. Just started with the second cycle today. Had strange heart flutters for about an hour after I took it and really itchy eyes tonight.
But my mood is low because I just want to be ok and being OK means not being on chemo.
Has your nausea and diarrhea settled down?
