Flu like symptoms after Chemo
Hi all, guess my luck ran out with not having any side effects after my chemo treatments. I received my first full dose of Carbo/Taxal on Monday 7/11/11. I did real good with the first six treatments but only had 1/3 of the Taxol. After the third day with the full dose I started feeling like I have the flu and numbness in my hands and feet but not really sick to my stomach.
I have one more treatment with the full dose in two weeks and was thinking about asking the Onc to maybe cut the dose back. I am just wondering how long this flu like feeling is going to stick with me. I know everyone is different but maybe some of you have had this experience and how long it lasted.
thanks in advance for any info or advice.
