I'm not even certain if I've ever started a thread here; I mostly just lurk and gather info for my wife. Some background info: my wife was diagnosed with Stage IIA IDC the day after her 37th birthday. The day of her 9th Taxol infusion, the Oncologist commented that she'll probably keep her nails...we hadn't thought about losing them. After that treatment her nails are excruciating to the touch. Literally, just touching a glass for her is like tapping her nails with a hammer. They don't look purple, just slightly discolored. But she can hardly walk they hurt so bad.
Is there anything any of you have done to lessen this pain? She's out of pain meds so we'll refill that tomorrow. The only pain meds she has are from the port surgery...that was just lovely. I just wanted to know if there's anything at all that we should be doing besides just bearing it. I appreciate any info you can offer.
