Capecetabine and leg pain
Hullo, My wife Anne has been taking oral capecetabine since January and must be on cycle six or so. During that time the dose has been reduced now at 50% due to mucocitis, etc. She is normal weight and in fit health and exercises for an hour a day on her trampoline or walking. She claims early 50's = but is 60ish I think. She has had rectal the op was 4 years ago and had a successful liver resection 9 months ago.
Over the last week she has had new onset increasing pain in the right part of her bottom that makes it hard for her to lift her leg and laso get out of bed. The pain is now severe. Walking seems to help. She denies leg weakness or restriction. She phoned the onc yesterday who advised seeing the GP. I have told her not to take the tabs this morning 'just incase'.
Any ideas welcome - she is very frightened that its like poor Olivia Newton John who has a met in her sacrum. As fas as is known - Anne is cancer free and CEA was 0.9 a month ago.
I am worried = any ideas gladly welcome please. Have you heard of this before.
