What’s next after Capecitabine

I posted around 9 months ago to ask about Capecitabine.  Well I’ve been on it with hardly any side effects and it was working.  However, my cancer markers have increased again past 2 months so I’m thinking it’s stopped working. 
I wondered what the next treatment is and if anyone could share their experience. I’m oestrogen positive. 
I’ve been fortunate up until now.  I’ve been well on Palbo and Cape.  I’m scared of the next line, especially losing my hair etc. 
  • Hi  

    I can't help with your question but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' your post back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be more easily seen.

    While you're waiting for replies it would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
