I have not been very well since I came off the Capecitabine. I did not have the recovery that I had had last time. It will be at least 3 weeks until I get the monoclonal antibody. I reasoned that I ought to have some maintenance therapy to tide me over the gap and decided after two weeks without any treatment to take half dose Capecitabine. This was a mistake. The abdominal pain and bloating kicked in with a vengeance.
To remedy this I have had a couple of days on clear fluids, more bed rest, dexamethasone 6mg, and I've bought some bigger shirts to accommodate my expanded waistline. Things are gradually getting better, but I shall have to start eating again soon.
