So, I've had two treatments now with Avastin, 15 mg. (per kilogram of body weight) every three weeks. Haven't had any side effects, except my body is a little achy (knees, hips, shoulders). Sometimes it's difficult to pull a shirt over my head. However, my onc. said that was due more to the effects of Taxol (my treatments with carbo/taxol stopped about 6 weeks ago), and could take as long as 9 months to go away. Interesting. I thought it was the Avastin that was supposed to make your joints ache.....
