Xeloda and drinking some cocktails during a vacation
My MBC friends on Zoom have convinced me to travel while I am feeling great! We will be enjoying a cruise during which I will be on my second week of Xeloda. I want to have a few cocktails during the vacation the week I am on Xeloda and the following week I am off Xeloda. I don't usually have side effects from Xeloda except keeping hand and foot infection at bay by using Udderly with 20% Urea lotion.
I am wondering if you have diarrhea the next day after having a cocktail (something fruity with a little alcohol in it, or Baileys and Kahlula? Is there anything I can take in order to prevent a side effect from alcohol? I don't drink at home except if we go out to dinner with friends, which is so rare that I don't have much experience with side effects from a cocktail.
My oncologist doesn't have much to say except thatr it is probably best to not consume alcohol. I am on vacation for the first time in years, and want to live a little with a drink or two. I appreciate your comments and suggestions.
