i'm new to writing, but i've been reading this site for a couple of weeks. i'd just like to know if anyone has had major side effects from taxol. i've been ok through the operation and the first 4 chemos (adr/cy), but this last chemo of taxol seemed to knock me on my butt. my doctor and the nurses led me to believe i'd probably sail right through this, too, but i can't work, i can't sleep and everything hurts. is it the drug or am i just getting to that point in chemo where it gets much harder? i only have 3 more treatments, but at this point i'm thinking this might be doing more harm than good. any opinions would be very much appreciated. thanks!
