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.
