Re: Liver mets Capecitabine

Hi

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.

Liver mets Capecitabine

Im interested to hear if anyone has had any luck taking Capecitabine for ER positive HER2 negative liver mets?
I was diagnosed with liver nets in June and prescribed letrozole, zoladex and palbociclib.
I found out yesterday that this regime hasn’t worked for me.
My mets have now spread and I have numerous small areas throughout my liver. 😳
I’d like to know if Capecitabine has worked for anyone else when oestrogen blockers have failed. My Er level is 7 so I’m disappointed blockers haven’t touched my mets.
Thanks ladies.
