I did the same regimen with a higher dose of Xeloda, but I am younger so my doc was willing to be more aggressive. This combo worked well for me. I hope you have the same results.

Oxaliplatin does this, no need to worry. For me it went away within the first week of the infusion. I managed it just by taking little bites at first. Its when I forgot and took a big swig or bite of something tart that I would end up with my whole face contorting and the veins on my neck standing out. My kids found it rather amusing.

Good luck!
