Secondary Breast Cancer in the Lungs

Hi Everyone, I've just been diagnosed (5th time in 27 years - so pretty good going); I've been told I need to start on Capecitabine chemo tablets. Is there anyone can comment on this drug - side effects etc? I shall be taking myself back to the Penny Brohn Cancer Centre, to get all the help and advise that they give so well. The totally amazing co founder - Pat Pilkington's (RIP) book 'The Golden Thread' has just been released, worth treating yourself to a copy - inspirational!!

Wishing you all deep, refreshing and healing sleep. Life is good - enjoy!

Many thanks Jean, earliest appointment I can get to see the nutritionist is 9/6.I'm pretty much following the guidelines given me before.

Kind regards
