I finished 4 dense dose A/C and 12 weekly taxol treatments on 12/8. At about week 9 of taxol I had stomach pain and was placed on prilosec once a day. The pain did not go away so week 12 my onc dr. told me to go see a gastro dr. I have been on prilosec twice a day now with pepcid complete twice a day. We ruled out pancreatitis and hepatitis and pleural effusions. the pain is band-like and I think I have reflux. I thought I had a hiatal hernia, but my GI doc thinks it's chemo related. Anyone else have this? Does it go away? I start radiation Jan 6. I am crying every day now for a few minutes. I never cried during chemo. I am tired and worried about my stomach and radiation. Any thoughts or advise?
