Post abraxane/paclitaxel with xeloda. New research suggests good results with this?

Hi everyone I am new to this forum. I was diagnosed in 2010 with stage iv MBC. My oncologist said new studies reveal that if you take capecibitane straight after paclitaxel or Abraxane that it greatly improves remission times. Am interested to hear if any ladies out there have been or are going through this regimen?
All the best

Hi mariposa, if you look at the forum front page there is a section for secondary ladies, ie those with MBC. You may find more of a response to your question there as we tend to be fairly well up on what treatments are available to us. Having said that I personally haven’t read about or heard of this trial/research but someone else may have.
