    Has anyone here taken Halevan for breast cancer?

    I was on Xeloda for three months for metastatic breast cancer and after the last PET scan, found out it did not work. Oncologist wants to put me on Halaven now as we need to get more aggressive. Anyone taken it for MBC and how good were the results and how bad were the side effects?

      I'm curious how Halaven is working for you. I was recently placed on it. Completed 4 cycles. The cancer is stable, so far. I have had moderate hair loss and a little nausea. Overall, not bad.
