Hi, I'm a divorced mother of two and am currently finishing up my tx of taxol. I've already done 4 a/c. I haven't felt well since the beginning of this adventure. I'm really tired and achey all the time. Right now I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed. Is there anyone who is willing to chat with me sometimes? Thanks.

Hi MadamJ!! My email address is ludasuesnout@yahoo.com. Anytime you would like to chat let me know. I am almost 4 years out from tx now. I had 12 rounds of a/c/5-fu followed by 36 rads. I know the tired and achey feeling. Hang in there. My prayers are with you ... angie

Hello, hello, and welcome to the group. I didn't have to have chemo, but I've heard the taxol is really bad. Are they giving you any steroids ahead of time? Just curious, as one of the ladies in my local support group said that helped a little with the pain after taxol. I would love to chat any time you want to. E-mail me any time....Cyndi
millionairs2@aol.com Best wishes...keep your chin up!

The tired & achy flu like symptoms are typical of Taxol & Taxotere. They will pass when you have finished. You don't say what stage you are but although it is getting you down the chemo will aid your survival so hang on in there. Look on it a phase in your life & look forward to the time when you can write in here that you are past your 1st anniversary as a survivor. Try to visualise a time when you feel well again & keep that vision in front of you. Look on each treatment as one less to go & the end is in sight. Lots of luck.
Love & hugs
Pam
