i need your advise on 3 issues.
#1 -2 weeks ago i had my first carbo/taxol and next week i am due again.
last tonight i have developed toothache and feels like my cheeck is swallen.it is my problem tooth.
i know for sure there is no nerve - r.canal was done long time ago. most likely it is some infection.
i am concerned if i will go to have some dental work - my blood white cells and red cells can get very low and delay chemo next week.
Any advise? thoughts?
#2 - for the last week or so i have an insomnia - practically do not sleep - maybe all together 4 hours a night, but not in once. sleep for one hour , can not fall back to sleep for 3, sleep another few hours ... and so on
can it be side effect from carbo/taxol?
othervise i feel no side effects now.
#3 - my hair still there, but they look much thinner and dull,
can i somehow make them more alive?
sorry for so many questions, but i am still new and new situations keep coming up.
i appreciate all your help
