Interested in hearing about your experiences with Taxotere.
Husband was unable to tolerate Navelbine after one treatment now on Taxotere. Doctor was actually pretty honest during this past visit - The cancer has grown quite a bit from just last month hence, the pain and illness he's had recently and the reaction to Navelbine on top of it... told him he is running out of treatment option (maybe one or two more viable options remain) and once those are exhausted he'll have to look at ho****e/pain management. Had he not had a resident following him around that day I doubt that he would have been so forthcoming since he hasn't been all along.
Had his first Taxotere on Wednesday. Tonight (Saturday) having horrible muscle, stomache cramps,and massive diarhea minutes after any food hits his stomache. But first chemo that has not given him high fevers and chills.The cancer is causing some pretty intense pain for him.
He is getting a port in a few weeks and is now saying he will stop working at the end of November.
