call the doctor immediately... sounds like a blood clot. does not necessairly mean disease progression. Xeloda, the oral form of 5FU, can cause blood clots, not likey but, is considered serious when it does. i had a blood clot caused from my central line and had the same symptoms as your mom. i waited too many days and ended up in a hospital in another town on a heparin drip. now i'm on warfarin (generic for coumadin) as i still have a central line. good luck
