Sorry to hear about the change in treatment, always an unsettling time. When I was on Cape back in 2013 I didn’t have any problems with wbc but I have read in here that some ladies have. Not many ideas and to be honest I didn’t think it was a problem until I read it on here. Hopefully it wont happen with you.
I’m starting on Cape next week. Ribociclib didn’t work for me for long and I’ve just heard there is progression in my liver mets. Are there likely to be treatment delays due to low bloods as with ribo?
Hi FeeltheFear, just wanted to wish you well on your new treatment, hope it works well and is kind to you. You’ve still got the best name on here imo!!! 😉Kate xx
Unfortunately hormone blockers don’t always work even if you are hormone positive and even those that work eventually stop being effective. I had been on hormone treatment for nearly 5 years (for bone mets) when my liver mets were found. I went onto Capecitabine and it worked very well for about 18 months. I remember at the time reading that it is usually effective for soft tissue mets so I do hope it works well for you. If you check out the XEloda/Capecitabine thread there’s quite a few ladies (maybe all?) taking it for soft tissue mets.
