I went from Adriamycin straight on to Taxotere (Taxol) & it sure was tough but you can make it. The limb pain is par for the course with Taxol. It does get better. So do the weepy eyes & the gut pain. If it is really getting you down ask for a slightly reduced dose or for more steroid help. That really eases the symptoms. But take one thing from this. The Taxol (Taxoter) really seems t work. Its the only treatment that has given me a gliimer of hope after all these years. Hang on in there. Love & HUgs
