Xeloda side effects

Hello, all.  I've been taking Xeloda, 2,000 mg a day,  for stage 4 anal cancer since July, one week on and one week off.  In the past 10 days, my heels have become quite swollen and sore.  This is known as hand-and-foot syndrome.  Since the malignant lymph glands in my groin haven't gotten larger, my oncologist agrees that I pause treatment for now.  I'm elated.  


Amazon recently published my self-help book Transcending Depression: Quest Without a Compass.   To get a peek at it, visit this Amazon link where you can “look inside”:
