Anti-pain Medication For Breast Cancer Sufferers?
Tonight doctor … I want to know what medicine can relieve the pain in my hands and feet that are blackened from taking xeloda. Because 1 year ago I drank xeloda at a dose of 3-3 making my feet and hands black and then every time I touched the embers of a torn hand until my nails were about to come loose. The pain begging for mercy, but after the dose is reduced to 1-1 gradually the pain is somewhat reduced. Now that I have been given the xrlod lg and this has started to blacken and aches for walking, I want to know what medication can relieve this pain. Thanks doctor

We understand the complaints that you feel. Xeloda contains the active ingredient Capecitabine, which is a drug used as a chemotherapy agent. This drug is usually intended for patients with breast cancer. The drug is able to slow the growth of tumor cells and kill tumor cells, thus helping to shrink the size of tumor cells.
Side effects such as disorders of the digestive tract, swelling, bleeding, discomfort in the body, fever, bruising or rashes, fatigue, irritation of the skin and various types of other side effects can occur. Of course, every patient who takes the drug has a different side effect.
Associated with pain complaints that you feel, serongi painkillers in cancer patients require special types of pain medications. Not indiscriminate anti-pain medication that may be given to cancer patients, especially those undergoing chemotherapy or other types of cancer therapy. Provision of pain relievers must be supervised by a specialist who treats it directly, because generally patients need pain relief that is relieving moderate to severe intensity pain so that it requires a doctor's prescription directly.
Therefore we recommend that you carry out consultations and evaluations related to your complaints with the specialist doctor who treats you.
