Re: Capecitabine/ bone and liver mets

Hi Julie, I’m not in the same position as you, but wanted to send a hug as you are feeling rotten. 🤗

I remember the night sweats when I first started Letrozole , and I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy! Hubby was changing the sheets as well as me.  In the meantime, get out the chill pillow and a little towel and make life a bit better for yourself. I found cutting down sugar was helpful, and I also had a cool bath or shower every night. Hopefully someone like you will pop in soon to share. Good luck. 🍀 x


Capecitabine/ bone and liver mets

Hi all , I’ve just finished my first cycle on Cape and my main complaint is night fevers , I’m changing 5/6 times a night , soaking wet each time .

Has anyone else suffered this with liver mets ? 

I was on Palbociclib but it didn’t work and my tumour markers have increased .

any advice would be greatly appreciated .

Julie xx
