the xeloda will not cause hair loss, but has a host of side effects that may or may not happen..i try my best to just go with the flow and see what happens..and my doctor told me that if i have any that are too much, they can adjust the dosage..
they are also looking into giving me another drug that i would receive every 2 weeks via IV, but i have to meet with a hematologist (hopefully this week) to determine if the blood clotting disorder will put me at risk while taking this one..(avastin is the name, and actually a trial that i turned down 2 years ago when this all started because it was offered in the bronx, and i would have had to travel there and to sloan..too much for me then)

ange was on speaker phone during the visit (he’s in akron visiting his parents) and my sweet lovely friends jessica and sasha were there, taking notes and helping me ask the right questions..

P.S. 5-FU is the name of the drug that xeloda metabolizes into..i have to say..im totally into the name..
FUCK YOU cancer..5 times..
