Beth Brown on Apr, 11, 2013:
I am a 58 year old female with stage 4 metastatic squamous cell cancer of unknown origin. I have been on Taxol for one year and was prescribed oral xeloda one week on, one off. After the first 5 days on the Xeloda, I suddenly developed airplane ear (no air travel for 3 months prior). 4 hours later, my ear drum ruptured and started draining. I was not sick nor have I ever had ear problems. MRI and CT scans were negative for cancerous activity but positive for fluid behind my ear drum.
Has anyone established a correlation between Xeloda and this type of side effect?
