    Oh No

    My Father had kidney cancer when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. He had decided that was going to stop his treatments after living with his cancer for 5 years. His cancer was spreading through out his body. I was so mad with him but after talking with him he just wanted his quality of life back, the side efects of his chemo made it hard for him to do daily activities and just to enjoy a meal. We had two months with him after he stopped his treatments, 9 months after I was first diagnosed with my breast cancer. !(

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am curantly on two oral chemos, Tykerb and Xeloda and once a month I get a shot of Xgeva. The Xgeva makes me feel like I got hit by a truck for a few days after. The side efects from the Xeloda that I have is the hand and feet drying out and blisting. By the second and third week I have to take a nap to get me through the day. I take Lysine to help with the dry mouth and mouth sores.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
