I'm sorry not to have communicated recently. but I have been very ill. I had to reduce my dose of Capcitabine because of toxicity and initially this improved the side effects, but only for a day and then fatigue and abdominal pain returned with a vengence; so much so that I could not take the full 14 day course. Even after stopping the toxicity continued and I had to stop eating. On water alone by mouth plus Buscupan and Co-codomol the symptoms gradually settled and I woke at 4 am today feeling better. I am due to start the same regime next Monday.
Thanks for all the good wishes.
